Storyline

The ambitious police officer Cruchot is transferred to St. Tropez. He's struggling with persistent nude swimmers, but even more with his teenage daughter, who's trying to impress her rich friends by telling them her father was a millionaire and owned a yacht in the harbor. He gets drawn into it when he tries to cover for her when a friend 'lends' the car of her assumed father. It turns out that the real owners of the yacht aren't exactly what they pretend to be either... Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

the frame
26 April 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

an easy comedy at the first sight. one of the most French comedy at the second view. because it propose a character and gives to a great actor the chance to build his glory. because it is the foundation of the universe of de Funes, the frame for his different masques, irony, stereotypes, humor, vulnerability, generosity, tenderness and frustration of the tyrant. short, the introduction to a seductive series and the first step to a world who remains touching, seductive and source of nostalgia. a story so simple, gags well known, hysterical little character and storms of different small situations. nothing more. so, must see it. maybe, as useful lesson of French cinema.
