A rare item this little Jean-Pierre Mocky’s feature never aired on any channel, although it met a rather good success in theaters. A flat, tepid swindle story, speaking of poor people having trusted some leading citizens of their town.

Inspired by a news item, this slapstick comedy exposes a financial swindle targeted at small investors. The film also allows us to recognize a few extraordinary faces already seen in other Mocky movies but, all in all, it's a minor effort that should only please the director's aficionados. Already forgotten.
