Adamo is so nice....
That was Salvatore Adamo's second film.The first time ,he had teamed up with Bourvil whose skills had saved a dreadful melodrama.Unlike in "Les Arnaud" the singer did not have any ditties here.

The nice singer plays a student -as he did in his first effort- and when he lands in jail,all the inmates call him "Science Po" (French school of political science) .Actually it is the supporting actors who walk away with the honors :Michel Constantin,Jean Desailly ,Simone Valère...

The title : it means "the unpaid bill" ;and the tag used to tell us: "in that job,if you do not behave yourself,you have got to pay the bill" .

Adamo made then his first self-directed movie "l'Ile Aux Coquelicots" but it was a flop.
