This is actor Pierre Mondy's only movie as a director;this is based on a play and it does not show too much.
A tycoon's wife is abducted by two- bit kidnappers who will run into difficulties when it comes to get a hefty ransom.The far-fetched story involves a cosmonaut,a fighter pilot,a cow, a listless husband , a wife who finally comes to dominate her abductors,and a false alarm ,where the whole neighborhood ends up in the place where the hoodlums keep their prisoner.
Jacqueline Maillan,who was an extremely funny actress on stage , would lose some of her appeal on the screen ;Michel Serraut ,Guy Bedos and Jacques Dufilho have a tendency to overact,in a heavy-handed plot .However ,Dufilho plays his game well,as a "scarecrows inventor" which does not sell well,"because the peasants do not understand them ,and,to make the matters worse,neither do the birds ".Robert Hirsh a french fighter pilot who passes himself off as a Russian rocket man ,gives a more restrained performance .
All in all ,this is a moral story in which ill-gotten gains seldom prosper.For the "good " husband and for the villains.
