An awkward robber named Vincent Papineau seizes a cheap painting during a burgling of routine in Montreal. Reselling for a bread bite, he learns that it concealed 50 000$ dissimulated in it's frame and that it belonged in fact to a certain Carlo, boss of the Marseillaise Maffia. In fact, the name of Carlo is the diminutive of... Carlotta Luciani, expert in vendettas. Carlotta launches out the search of her painting, in company of Marius, her henchman. The chance smile to Vincent, disguised as a priest to escape his prosecutors, he is noticed by two police officers who mistake him for Claude Laurin, a colleague of the "brigade" that everyone believed on vacation. Conscious that it will be uncovered at the return of the true cop Claude Laurin of which he usurped the identity, Vincent profits from it to elaborate an incredible plan with his friend Dieudonné.

Extremely entertaining and lots of fun for the whole family! The cast was superb. Generally, I stay away from light weight comedies, but I liked the cast and gave it a chance. The actors are all well know in Quebec. I was fascinated that Roy Dupuis, a dramatic actor, would choose to do a comedy. I have to hand it to him, he surprised me enormously. Lucie Laurier did an excellent job as a policewoman in the film. She has range. This super funny script has the right amount of action, comedy and romance. I'll go see it again with my kids. I'm sure they will love it. Unfortunately, you need to speak french to understand and appreciate this excellent french comedy. It appears to me that the people who don't like this film must obviously not comprehend french and therefore, just don't get the humor.
