Quantin lives with his family in a village near the Swiss border. He is increasingly anxious that he has received no news from his eldest daughter, Marie-Louise, who went to Lyon to find work as a hairdresser.
Shameful, awful and miserable comedy (that is what it is supposed to be) in which the talents of both Heinz Rühmann and Fernandel are wasted; one feels pity for them. Badly directed with no timing of the already poor and crude "jokes", poor acting by anyone involved, poor cinematography, in fact poor everything. Rühmann already played in the 1931 adaptation of the play the film is based on: "Der brave Sünder"; the less said about thìs film, the better. (1/10)
