The films of French Occupation cinema are re-surfacing and this Fernandel vehicle proves to be likable enough. It has two qualities, the comic's toothy comedy character and the waterfront village atmosphere filmed attractively on location.
Nice to see Janine D'A. from FRENCH WITHOUT TEARS among others, again too.
Most curious element is the the priest consulted as unquestioned oracle. This had the local audience hissing at the show I saw. His prominence is intriguing in a production line comedy film made under German war time control.
