This film is absolutely adorable. Jean Gabin plays a retired race track gambler (Tulipe) who spends his time in his hobby garden. When he is approached by some relatives to "lauder" counterfeit Francs, he reluctantly develops a grandiose scheme to exchange the "blossoms" into real cash at the tracks. The End (which I won't spill here), is so hilarious as it is sad. Lilo Pulver's role is absolutely brilliant, as is Curd Jügens'. A film without violence for the whole family.
