A very adequate title!
30 September 2003 | by yan-3See all my reviews

Certainly not one of the best movie of de Funes. This black and white vaudeville, typical of the post-war period in France, should please the aficionados of Louis, discourage those willing to learn more about him and comfort in their opinion those who hate him. None-the-less, the film present an interesting gallery of characters and occasionally bring a smile on your face.
