This is the movie where the famous French comic Fernandel plays six different roles. It certainly shows his versatility. Kudos to him. Problem is, none of his six characters are amusing (though one of them, a priest who is getting confused with a movie priest, Don Camillo, also played by Fernandel in other movies, is certainly very meta!). Some fleeting female nudity (in a commercial comedy) makes you assume that the censorship laws were much more lax in France at the time, but otherwise the movie is also paced like an ancient fossil; it is strictly for Fernandel fans. *1/2 out of 4.
