Storyline

Rene is a "ripou", a rotten cop who makes ends meet by accepting bribes, presents and free drinks from the people he should be putting in jail. When his partner retires, he must team up with Francois, a young police school graduate with a righteous attitude. He is hard to break and Rene has to trick him. He introduces Francois to a charming girl and forgets to mention she's a prostitute. Now Rene has something against Francois he can use in case his partner should want to reveal Rene's little commerce with the underworld. The partners ultimately become friends, get one another out of a tough situation, and manage to gather enough money to buy Rene his lifelong dream: a small café near the horse tracks.

Charming French farce, with a twist in the tail.
8 July 2000 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

French farce with a twist. A charming piece, better watched in French with the English subtitles, for the full effect. An American production would be too slick, or too juvenile to re-make this, but I'm surprised a British unit has not, yet! Lovely character studies, a few surprises and a plot that offers humor, or humour, with some charming locations. Well worth watching if you can find it and enjoy the 'Diva', 'style of movie that the French are best known for.
