Again Louis De Funes shows his special talent with the Gendarmes in Sainz-Tropez
5 November 2008 | by See all my reviews

Officer Ludovic Cruchot's(Louis De Funes) along with his outfit(Maurice Risch, Grosso and the chief, Michael Galabru, though isn't Jean Lefevre) are transferred to new and modern Gendarmerie Nationale with computer included. When appear four Gendarmettes the gendarmes group is revolutionized. Then two Gendarmettes are kidnapped by an issue of secret codes and Cruchot goes into action. He's secretly moving in disguise, dressing as woman.

This agreeable French comedy about the sympathetic gendarmes contains enjoyable humor, brief intrigue, too much fun and lively situations. There's a certain critical to the French customs and especially a banter of French Police called Gendarmerie. Louis De Funes, as always overacting , he puts faces, grimaces, stooges, tongue twister and lots of gesticulation . This is a pretty amusing farce with the master comic Funes in his usual role. Claude Gensac as his habitual wife, she collaborated with Funes in ten films, often acting his character's spouse. Fine local photography and atmospheric musical score with catching leitmotif by Raymond Lefevre. The motion picture is well made by customary director, Jean Girault. Picture is a Funes vehicle, he's a real comic and authentic farceur. If you like Funes' crazy interpretation you'll enjoy this one. This is the last picture from Cruchot series, another films are : The Gendarme and the creatures from outer space; The Gendarme takes off; The Gendarme get married; Gendarme in N.Y. and the classic, The Gendarme of St. Tropez.
