Storyline

Pierre is a hotel cashier in Vichy, so shy that he answers an ad from the Psychology Institute and can't say no to the salesman, Aldo; he spends 6,000 francs on tapes, books, and a punching bag. Soon after, he's smitten by Agnes, a hotel guest with a model's looks and photographers wherever she goes. When she leaves for Nice, he follows, meeting Aldo on the way. Aldo becomes his boldness coach. Pierre gets a job washing dishes where Agnes is staying, but after a week or so, she's off to Deauville, with Aldo and Pierre in pursuit. Using funds they get by selling Aldo's car, this time Pierre poses as a polo-playing jet setter. Will this win the heart of Agnes? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

French comedy from its golden era
12 February 2002 | by (Prague) – See all my reviews

Excellent comedy! One of the best Pierre Richard played in and one of the few he directed. He is, as many times, very shy and unpractical guy who falls in love with unreachable woman, this time even from higher society. But Pierre here gives a great performance which makes it very funny to watch and on the other hand very believable. My favorite is the final "rescue scene". Dressed as fireman, he tries to be a hero and rescue her from flames. Try to imagine how successful he is. Or...don't try, better see it. When I first saw it on Czech TV I fell twice from bed laughing...
