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>

dumb as hell
16 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

I'm guessing that making this movie was a lot of fun, free trip to Greece and all, but the result is a typical genre of early Eighties French comedy that had previously put me off French cinema for over 10 years. Maybe we ought to give Broca credit for trying to deal with a serious topic (the black market of archeological antiquities) but the mixture of satire, slapstick, romance and police investigation is a total failure. Nice music and scenery though.
