Mme Monicourt : "but,my dear,isn't it a bit too much to appear on stage wearing only a vest?"
Isabelle,des Folies Bergères: "You miss the point!I'm completely naked!"
This is a movie which is so far-fetched,so silly but so dense (there's a lot of Coups de Théâtre in a movie which lasts barely 70 min.)
Mme Monicourt ,a bourgeois matron ,(Alice Tissot) has just married her only daughter.Discovering that her son-in-law,Robert, will not be at her beck and call as her unfortunate hubby (Pierre Larquey)is ,she wants her offspring to get a divorce.
She first thinks of a Folies Bergères dancer (Ginette Leclerc)who could be a perfect mistress for Robert .But she 's got finally a better idea: one day,on a train,during a storm,Robert had an affair with a woman and she told him that woman was herself!So his wife,Nicole,is his daughter! Such a screenplay might seem inept,but it isn't !It is completely mad,involving so many affairs and so many mistaken identities it's impossible to count'em all.The flashback -Robert seduces a woman in a compartment- takes place in a cardboard train !
