Louis de Funes at its best role!
31 October 2016 | by LakiM9See all my reviews

The third movie in the Gendarme series.Cruchot is a widower and he falls in love with a wealthy widow ,Josepha (Claude Gensac).But it seems that his daughter is not ready to accept Josepha and she first refuses her new "mother". A perfect movie if you just want to sit and laugh.

It is also got very catchy score like all of Gendarme movies. The movie itself is having a lot of practical jokes we see. Dialogue is also done very nice, so as events which help the story to keep going. It is also clearly visible that some of this movie's jokes had an influence on Yugoslavian comedy movies.

Editing is done nice so is camera's work(it is very flexible though). Nice 1960s French gem really! 7/10
