Set in the French Riviera, this absurd, rollicking comedy (thank god!) tells the story of Yvonne, a detective who learns that her late husband was not the heroic cop everyone believed him to be, but a thoroughly corrupt scoundrel. Revelations come fast and furious as she tries to right his wrongs in sticky situations. The action is performed with enormous enthusiasm by a top-notch cast and directed with verve by Pierre Salvadori. Played Cannes.
