| Ah! I wish the French scriptwriters were a little more inspired!
This is the story of Aldo Bonnard, a modest representative for a capillary products firm who's having a rough time: he's about to divorce his wife Alice and his new boss, Gérard is a hypocritical and despotic man. To crown it all, he discovers that his wife has a love affair with his boss! But one day, he wins the fabulous amount of 10 millions of euros. From this moment, you can guess his intentions. He decides to leave his job, to take advantage as much as possible of his money and not to reveal this piece of news to his wife until the day of the divorce.

From the reading of this summary, you probably understood it: there's nothing new in this story. Moreover this new variation of the millionaire in spite of himself reveals something disappointing: there aren't any good French scriptwriters who are able to concoct an original script that is off the beaten paths for a comedy. It isn't Gérard Bitton's movie that will arrange things. When you watch it, you are on a well-known ground: convenient or predictable situations, abortive and nice enough comic, a correct performance but that's all and at the end, an easy moral.

You'd better avoid this movie.
