Gilbert, poet and singer, is about to marry Lilette but deep inside himself he is not quite sure that she is the woman he needs. That is the reason why he has made up an imaginary woman, Frédérica" to whom he writes love letters, actual ones this time. When Lilette finds one of these, she sees red. Théodule, one of Gilbert's many friends, sets out the problem with the help of Claudine, his own girlfriend, posing as Frédérica. After Gilbert and "Frédérica" have played a phony breakup scene in front of Lilette, things seem to come right when... another Frédérica appears... Written by
Famous singer Charles Trénet made two movies with director Jean Boyer;for the record ,the precedent was "Romance De Paris";both are entertaining unpretentious stuff;Unlike some old-fashioned singers,when you deal with "Le Fou Chantant' (the singing lunatic) ,you do not have to push the fast forward button.And the writer of "La Mer" (translated as "beyond the sea") does sing three compositions :"Frederica" ,the infectious "Marie -Toi"and the wistful "Le Bonheur Ne Passe Qu'Une Fois".You even see him working on "Marie -toi " in his apartment ,and catch a glimpse of the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre in the background.
Gilles Legrant is a singing poet ;his friends do not approve of his impending wedding ,not suitable for someone who leads a bohemian life ;anyway ,the soon-to-be-bride is a snub silly goose who asks to the servant to speak to her in the third person .Letters to a mysterious woman only makes the matters worse.Soon ,Gilbert is stuck with three "fiancees .It seems that the ideal wife is only a mirage.
Charles Trénet 's best moment in the movies remains his segment in the overlooked "La Cavalcade Des Erreurs" in which he sings his perennial "Que Reste-T-IL De Nos Amours?"
