| A hatful of snow.
David is a second-rate lawyer , relegated to a position of the secondary importance in his boss' office ;besides his colleague ,Brice ,an ambitious man with good prospects ,gets on his nerves . Worst comes to worst :his wife is fired and has no more job..

Finding a suitcase full of cocaine might be a godsend ;first David intends to work solo but his wife ,first reluctantly ,joins him and even gives him a piece of advice to increase his new income thanks to baby powdered milk .Pretty soon , the father-in-law ,reluctantly too at first joins the new traffickers .

This is funny little comedy ,with plenty of good situations :the stuff's owner ,who reclaims his dough and makes himself call "Mister Patron" (=Boss) ;the cop who tells David's rowdy son he should take his admirable parents as a model; the daughter, telling her mom they have always warned them against dope and now they become dealers themselves; Brice ,the first-class lawyer ,trying his hand at blackmail , but showing himself a callow amateur: the screenwriters take revenge on all the brilliant lawyers we meet in so many movies .

The movie is a reductio ad aburdum that drug traffic can contaminate a whole family (like father,like son) but it can help to rebuild a family and bring them back to the straight and narrow.

The moral is not unlike that of "Paulette" (2012) ,in which a retired old lady (Bernadette Laffont ) managed to make ends meet by selling hasch cakes which helped her quit her racist ways.
