Fernandel shines in this Christian-Jaque comedy. He is here allowed to play a dual character as his boss at the car factory is convinced the night watchman Modeste has a petty criminal brother meeting the first one at a night club when he should be at his night shift. Consequently, he tries to make the twins his driver(s) in hope to win the next automobile marathon. This nice fluff includes musical numbers, romance and some car chases. This is one of the hundreds of french comedies from the 30s very few people will ever be able to see, films who despite their very unpretentious nature always have something special to offer their viewers. This is one of the very best.
