Do you have to be French-speaking to love this movie ? I would guess so judging by the average mark on IMDb. How can it be so amazingly low? This is a gem among French comedies of the 70's. The man behind the camera is (rightly) worshiped as the best French dialog writer. Although this film makes nothing to have him worshiped for directing as well, his art of dialogs is at the top here, and is wonderfully supported by a cast of comedians who were too often restricted to supporting roles. The movie draws an ironic picture of flawed artists living in poor conditions. Eventually one is meeting a rich lady and he suddenly climbs the social ladder. The movie is somewhat reminiscent of fierce Italian comedies of the 60's and early 70's.
