This enjoyable romp with spot-on performances was a Cannes favorite. Set in the French Riviera, this rollicking screwball romance/caper comedy pivots on policewoman Yvonne, a widow who learns that her much-honored, late detective husband was in fact a crooked cop. As Yvonne surreptitiously tries to right the wrongs her hubby committed, she winds up playing guardian angel to Antoine, who wound up unjustly imprisoned for a robbery and is now free at last and ready to wreak vengeance on society. Certainly non-PC, the film offers many pleasures, not least the constantly revised versions of her husband's exploits that Yvonne relates to her young son in lieu of bedtime stories, the inspired sight gags that director Salvadori builds around an S & M dungeon, and a serial killer toting bags of his dismembered victims. Stars Adèle Haenel, Pio Marmai, Damien Bonnard and Audrey Tautou supply committed and sweetly goofy performances.

"[G]iddy good cheer pervades this movie, a romantic farce that couldn't be more preposterous or delightfully goofy" - Screen Daily
