Storyline

Antoine Peyralout is baker Mouillefarine's tricycle delivery man. Comical and stuttering, Antoine shows more interest in the local soccer team than in professional integrity. A wedding cake pays the price for it and the young man is dismissed. Not dispirited in the least, Antoine decides to go to Nice, where his favorite team will play the final of the Cup. On his merry (and eventful) way, he has the opportunity to save a pretty camper, Popeline, with whom he falls in love. Once in Nice, he discovers that Dabek, the brilliant goal-keeper is not up to his task following bad news... Written by Guy Bellinger

Excellent french comedy with Darry Cowl
4 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a good french comedy which began Darry Cowl career. Darry Cowl did a great show in this burlesque comedy. You must see the French version for his stuttering accent. my note: 9/10
