Michel Blanc married his comedy star status in France to critical acclaim, winning the Best Actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival for Blier’s outrageous farce about a would-be bourgeois couple (Blanc and Miou-Miou) seduced into a life of crime and into bed by thug Gérard Depardieu. The costume design (requiring extra effort for some of the actors) is by longtime Blier collaborator Michèle Cerf, and the César Award-nominated score is by Serge Gainsbourg.
