Storyline

Quatre amis, Etienne, Daniel, Simon et Bouly ont du mal à grandir et, la quarantaine révolue, continuent de se jouer des tours. Etienne, qui est toujours resté fidèle à sa femme, tombe amoureux de Marthe après ne l'avoir vue qu'une seule fois et met le paquet pour la conquérir, avec l'aide de ses amis, entre équivoques et situations à la limite de la farce. A la fin, il va se retrouver sur une corniche au huitième étage, en robe de chambre devant la foule, la télévision et les sapeurs pompiers... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

The adults are big kids.
15 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Yves Robert's best works are those which deal with children :"la guerre des boutons" "la Gloire de mon Père" and its follow-up "le château de ma mère"."Un éléphant" is not as good as the three movies I mention above.But what connects it to his three wonderful films is that its four heroes have not really grown up.Claude Brasseur 's way of pitting the olives is a schoolboy 's joke!We can also credit Robert for introducing a gay character (Brasseur) while avoiding the usual clichés.Brasseur portrays a man like all the other ones.We'd never guess he is gay if we were not told it so.On the other hand,the female parts are not very interesting:Daniele Delorme -who was Robert's wife and her co-producer-was better in the fifties when she was directed by Duvivier and the attractive Duperrey is nothing but a mirage .And Guy Bedos 's mother is a calamity ,for Marthe Villalonga is ham-acting flesh on the bone.

The movie was so successful that there was a sequel ("Nous irons tous au Paradis' ) and an American remake ("the woman in red")
