Louis-Philippe Fourchaume, another typical lead-role for French comedy superstar Louis de Funès, is the dictatorial CEO of a French company which designs and produces sail yachts, and fires in yet another tantrum his designer André Castagnier, not realizing that man is his only chance to land a vital contract with the Italian magnate Marcello Cacciaperotti. So he has to find him at his extremely rural birthplace in 'la France profonde', which proves a torturous odyssey for the spoiled rich man; when he does get there his torment is far from over: the country bumpkin refuses to resume his slavish position now the shoe is on the other foot, so Fourchaume is dragged along in the boorish family life, and at times unable to control his temper, which may cost him more credit then he painstakingly builds up...Written by
Unlike Paris tag-line, this movie is sometimes like the Titanic: it floats and sinks. In other words, the movie has very good moments but also very, long and dull parts: the long endless ships race at the beginning, the carnage of the tractor and the chase of the floating toilets. Outside those moments, the movie is really funny: Fufu is the typical Fufu, embodying a mean, cupid and rich boss. His talent is to find spots to have fun with such mean person and almost make him likable and human! Around him, he finds a strange read-head family. All this happens a long time ago in France and in the country, so you can have a nostalgic travel into time as well.
