Campy and bad Don Juan de Marco/James bond mix
14 April 2020 | by guisreisSee all my reviews

Bad campy French comedy, with lots of unfanny slapstick, a lot of silliness and very few nice gags. Sophie Marceau is cute and charming in her youth, Marie Laforêt does a competent job and has a strong presence, but Jean-Paulo Belmondo is very unconvincing in the leading role, partially due his unskilled overacting and because he does not fit in that character which is a mix of Don Juan de Marco and James Bond. As a matter of fact, the whole concept of the story is not good at all.
