| A coarse comedy....
It was a genre which was very popular in the early thirties in France .Two other good examples are "Les Dégourdis De La Onzième" and "Ignace" where Fernandel was featured too.Here he is only supporting as is Jean Gabin.

The "crazy barracks" style is really an acquired taste.This kind of comedy is terribly dated.Even with Raimu who plays Captain Hurluru, a military man who seems to make it rough all over the place and who finally is a good man,with a great heart who pays for the headcheese his squaddies have stolen.It's occasionally funny,notably when the general comes for the review and punctuates every captain's gaffe with a terse "it does not really matter" .In those lovely barracks,you can sing,smoke ,drink and eat headcheese in the prisons.

Based on Georges Courteline's work,a writer who wrote spoofs on the army and their iron discipline.
