The movie feels like a stage play at times. It is witty, funny and has great moments, (and a few disappointing scenes too). Overall great fun and a welcome break from Belmondo's "policier"/adventure comedies of the 70's and 80's.
This movie can be watched over and over again. All the actors play well with slight overacting with results in the "stage play feeling" together with the relatively few different sets.
The speed boat sequence in the opening of the film seems a bit weird and should be ignored.
Anyway highly recommended comedy from French Grounds.
Belmondo is and will always be a great actor.
