In a town on the French Riviera, detective Yvonne is the young widow of police chief Santi, a local hero. When she realizes her husband was not exactly the model of virtue so idolized by their young son, and that an innocent young man, Antoine, has spent 8 years in prison as Santi's scapegoat, she is thrown into turmoil. Yvonne wants to do everything she can to help this very charming Antoine get back to his life and his wife . Everything that is, except telling the truth. But Antoine is having trouble adjusting to life on the other side, to say the least, and soon blows a fuse leading to a spectacular sequence of events.

C'est pas si marrant :(
The critic review here says "This movie is a very mixed bag. There are a good number of quite funny bits, and thanks to Audrey Tautou in a supporting role, a couple of genuinely touching moments. But the actions and reactions of the two main characters make absolutely no psychological sense at all, ever. If that doesn't put you off, then by all means see this movie for the many funny gags."
I couldn't agree more. My wife would have given it a minus so would my friend. His wife had a good time with it and I ,(the French man), was rather perplex about it. The gags were few and far from each others (yes I would not say either 'good number). I differ with the critic thinking that A Tautou was under used, so much for the support! But even if it did not much for me I found it quite original and thought it would be up some people's alley. My memory is not the best by now as such don't ask me about 'en liberte' tomorrow I won't remember it... if you know what I mean!
PS Again you could not spoil it, it did a good job at it itself
