Storyline

Antoine, a professor of Greek, and Lise, a police inspector, honeymoon in Greece. There they meet a young couple, Charles, an archaeologist, and Agnes, a dishy flirt. Charles unearths the lovely buttocks of a classical statue and is determined to donate it to the Louvre. Agnes wants to sell it and gets a handsome local sailor to take it for an appraisal. When the sailor is murdered, the police suspect Charles and arrest Antoine as his accomplice. Lise swings into action, but before she can clear the men, Agnes springs them from jail, and now Lise must help them elude the police, find the real murderer, and recover the statue fragment. More art goes missing. What is the statue's secret? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

funny, nice scenery and music
25 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have first seen this movie when I was a kid and had a good time watching it. Now that I see it again 15 years later I realize it hasn't lost anything of its original charm.

The dialogue is funny, witty and provides most of the humor of the film (sort of reminds me of 'You've got mail'). Being able to understand the original French soundtrack is a plus, cause a lot gets lost in the translation.

I also like the movie since it gives a funny overview of Greek life/politics quite unknown to many people who have visited the country as casual tourists.

If you want to see a funny movie without exploding cars, horror scenes and the like I highly recommend it.
