Storyline

In a Provençal village, two jolly good fellows, Boule and Pons, decide to dress as Saint Anthony and Saint Nicholas for the distribution of presents to the children on the feast of Saint Nicholas. They unfortunately get killed by a cart and find themselves in Hell where Lucifer and his demons duly torment them. They are saved by a prayer which helps them to climb the stairway to Paradise. Saint Peter, taken in by the applicants' disguise, lets them in. When the two true Saints show up, trouble follows. Luckily, thanks to the intervention of the Virgin Mary, the two friends are acquitted at their celestial trial and allowed to return to Earth. Written by Guy Bellinger

Trouble in paradise
10 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

When I was five or six,we were in Paris and my mother took me to the pictures twice:first "bridge on the river Kwai" where the only things that fascinated me were a ventilator in an office and the final scene .Then the following day "les Gueux au Paradis" ,a black and white film which was not even a new release when I saw it .Those were my two first films ever.

Two jolly fellows got run over by a stagecoach.They immediately wind up in Hell ,but they do not like it (would you?) so they escape from this horrible place and knock on Heaven's door.But St Peter is not prepared to accept them either ,so back to the square one (the Earth) and do not collect any bucks.

Seeing Fernandel and Raimu together is enough for me.To know them is to love them.Period.
