An awful rating for a comedy which is not worse than countless others; a clerk,humiliated by his boss,learns that he is the heir of a baron (hence the title:"a sweet whiff of dough" ) When he arrives at the desirable château,he unfortunately realizes that he is not the sole legatee;so what about getting rid of those intruders? But someone might have had the same idea.
Some good ideas ,but black humor is hard to handle and the screenplay lacks finesse and focus.Françoise Rosay disappears too soon and Yves Renier -who became famous thanks to "Belphegor" and has continued a brilliant career in TV series-is definitely not a comic actor (one could dream of what a contemporary thespian such as Jean Dujardin would have done with this part).
