For many years the morning in a house on a hill - somewhere on the outskirts of Paris - always began in the same way. The alarm clock rang out, the radio was nodding, the servant in the kitchen was laying out a solitaire, the pope was remembering the wisdom of Demosthenes, my mother was preparing breakfast. The protagonist, Robert's son, grew up, grew older, grew taller than his father, and even became an attorney for a well-known lawyer. True, in one ordinary winter day in the life of Robert there have been great changes. The young rake unexpectedly lost his job and met the charming girl Catherine - the adoptive mother of a lovely child. And much began to change in the apartment of a friendly family of Robert.

Oh, I'm not completely agree with the previous review of that film, because author says that it's not funny at all. Yes, it's not a hilarious french comedy like Oscar, Gendarmes or something like that. That film goes in the way of Sabrina (I mean early films with Audrey Hepburn), because I think it more American feel there than french. The cast is good. Women plays good parts. The father of the family is outstanding, especially in the very beginning of the film. And there is a little gem. A wonderful part by Louis de Funes. He is at his best there, but this episode is so short. (Approx. 3 min.). So i give 76 out of 100
