Annie Girardot and Philippe Noiret are at their best, playing a strange couple: she is a police officer and he is an archaeologist. The other couple is equally strange: he is an archaeologist, while she is a "bimbo". The common adventure that they share help the two couples to understand that their relation still works.
I saw this movie as a child, and I can still remember it. I won't mind seeing it again. I like it, as it is both funny and relaxing. Besides, it has wonderful landscapes and seascapes from Greece. Last but not least: beautiful Greek music. It is like going on a 90-minute holiday to Greece. I would go for it again.
