Bemusing follow-up with too much entertainment , full of mirth and lots of fun
21 April 2009 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Again Ludovic Cruchot(Funes) and the Marichal remaining(Guy Grosso,Michael Modo,Christian Martin and Jean Lefevre), this time the chief Adjuntant Jerome(Michael Galabru) assign them impersonate ordinaries civilians to chase lawbreakers drivers,transgressors and delinquents. Meanwhile Ludovic falls in love with a rich widow named Josefa(Claude Gensac)surging an electrifying romance.Then Cruchot goes to a dance academy practicing an amusing dancing along with a thief.Cruchot takes Josefa to Disco-music called Byblos and happen various incidents in a 'Vaudeville' style. There his feisty daughter Nicole(Genenieve Grad) impersonating a girlfriend and later she embodies a little girl facing to Josefa. Later Cruchot presents to exams for superior degree along with Ajuntant Jerome and Ludovic is promoted by an error as chief of the Gendarmerie Nationale. When is aware the true, Ludovic turning into midget.Exciting final pursuit including a helicopter and where Louis De Funes driving in bounds and leaping until a ship. Of course also appears the ordinary nun, this time driving rapidly a sidecar and Ludovic as co-pilot , replacing the habitual Citroen.

It's an entertaining story and very amusing tale with the farceur Louis De Funes.Packs agreeable comedy, tongue in check, lively situations abound, crazy humor and too much fun. This time is the first intervenes Claude Gensac who collaborated with Funes in ten movies, often acting his role's spouse, though some episode is substituted by Maria Mauban. The argument is similar to previous and successive entries adding a brief intrigue about the kidnapping Josefa by a criminal and the problems emerge. Colorful local cinematography under Saint Tropez bright sun by usual Marcel Crignon. Enjoyable soundtrack by Raymond Lefevre, however this time isn't the usual ending parade , being substituted by musical background of the just married .This co-production Paris-Rome is professionally realized by customary director Jean Girault.The flick is a Funes recital, if you like Funes'nutty acting you'll like this one, because he does intense mocking faces,grimaces, moving in disguise and lots of mimic gesticulation.It's followed by Gendarme in New York, Gendarme and creatures of outer space and Gendarme and the Gendarmettes.
