A widowed man, Mr Charme (Michel Bouquet) doesn't recover from his wife's death and he asks a nurse, Reine (Gwennola Bothorel) to find a solution so that he can join his late wife. Reine accepts because Mr Charme is a well-off widowed and she hopes to appropriate his fortune. For this, she is helped by Mr Charme's involved nephew, "Joyeux".
The starting point of this movie is very interesting because it aims at showing the stinginess and the hypocrisy of certain characters obstinate by appropriating a person' inheritance. As a rule, such a topic would have demanded a caustic and malicious humor but unfortunately, it's not really the case. The movie rather distills a slight and discreet humor. The ironical side of the movie is especially softened rather than showed.
Nevertheless, Roger Guillot offers us a pleasant movie that is worth seeing for Michel Bouquet' imposing performance. It just goes to show that a great actor can save a quite minor movie. When Bouquet is out of the sequences, the movie loses its interest. He also epitomizes a caricature of retired people: sullen and a tiny bit cynical.
