Plot Summary

Quatre amis, Etienne, Daniel, Simon et Bouly ont du mal à grandir et, la quarantaine révolue, continuent de se jouer des tours. Etienne, qui est toujours resté fidèle à sa femme, tombe amoureux de Charlotte après ne l'avoir vue qu'une seule fois et met le paquet pour la conquérir, avec l'aide de ses amis, entre équivoques et situations à la limite de la farce. A la fin, il va se retrouver sur une corniche au huitième étage, en robe de chambre devant la foule, la télévision et les sapeurs pompiers... Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia
