Louis de Funès in his typical acting...
20 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

I think this movie is a brilliant example for a Louis de Funès movie. You can discover his typical way of acting. I consider it as one of the five best movies he has ever made. The plot is not the best at all but with his comedy talent he saves it to an upper level. There are some delicious scenes for example the one in the mayor's office where he gives us a view of his billiards play. Most other characters are not convincing although they try to do. If you concentrate you on the linguistic subtlety in some dialogues you will absolutely have fun.
