Storyline

Philippe, a student, is sent to jail for manhandling his father's business partner, who blackmailed the poor man and caused his death. He shares his cell with two mates: easily offended Théo Giulani and jovial Bob Daniels, with whom he soon establishes a bond of friendship. Still obsessed by the idea of avenging his father, Philippe enters into a pact with the two men: they will break into the partner's office, force open his safe and seize the document exposing the criminal. As a reward, Théo and Bob will get away with the money and the diamonds there. But the police is in the know... Written by Guy Bellinger

Adamo is so nice....
20 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

That was Salvatore Adamo's second film.The first time ,he had teamed up with Bourvil whose skills had saved a dreadful melodrama.Unlike in "Les Arnaud" the singer did not have any ditties here.

The nice singer plays a student -as he did in his first effort- and when he lands in jail,all the inmates call him "Science Po" (French school of political science) .Actually it is the supporting actors who walk away with the honors :Michel Constantin,Jean Desailly ,Simone Valère...

The title : it means "the unpaid bill" ;and the tag used to tell us: "in that job,if you do not behave yourself,you have got to pay the bill" .

Adamo made then his first self-directed movie "l'Ile Aux Coquelicots" but it was a flop.
