The comedies of the French fifties are rather cheesy ,but hindsight often displays their charm.Not always ,sadly.
This one is abysmal,a dreadful potpourri of incompetent directing ,writing,with actors left to their own devices ,overplaying all along the way ;as for the screenplay ,there's no plot at all ,except for a series of desultory sketches ,none of which is comic.The vocal group ,Les Freres Jacques, performs three songs ,their fans might be interested .Dora Doll ,the French Gloria Grahame,portrays an actress about to play Mérimée's "Carmen" ,Louis De Funès appears now and then as a poet waiter .
Marcel Pagliero,the director,appears in the flesh and,considering the results,he should have worked behind the scenes .Forget this drivel and do choose his "La P. Respectueuse" or his best effort "Un Homme Marche Dans La Ville".
