In Paris, a gold smuggler is at war with other local gangsters who want piece of the action. Then the mob shows up and makes things worse. Also, an undercover US Treasury Department agent is trying to infiltrate the smuggler's business.
Three old chums who are number ones in the business of practical jokes decide to leave their village from Vendée in France in order to go and live in a old people's nursing home. Pested off and unable to stand their jokes any more, the villagers are more than happy to see them leaving off. But the three old men, soon enough, feeling bored of the nursing home, make up their mind to come back and settle down in the village.Written by
I saw this on French TV about a year ago - a great ensemble performance by 3 of the best (though aged) French actors hamming it up - kind of the outcasts of their little town due to general crochetiness (especially a destructive rampage by Gabin at a dance hall). The most memorable scene finds them lost in open country, where an unreadable signpost is discovered. Much arguing ensues. Much wine is also consumed on the way to their final rest...home.
