I'm french, so I had the pleasure to listen to the real dialogues for this movie. As usual, they are superb. Michel Audiard was a really great writer, his dialogues are full of intelligence and remarkably well written.
This movie is not to be missed, and is one of the best comedy by Philippe de Broca with Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Victor Vautier is incorrigible: he's in constant motion, working several cons at once, using different names and changing disguises. He's charming and outrageous, incapable of uttering a sentence that isn't embellished or an outright lie. His life goal is to make enough money to build a sea wall to protect Mont-Saint-Michel. Charlotte, a parole officer, shows up: she's young and seems taken in by Victor. He discovers she lives above the Senlus Museum, where her parents are the curators. With two pals he decides to steal a priceless El Greco triptych and then ransom it back to the cultural ministry. What will Charlotte do when she realizes he's used her to make a fortune?
