In an unsuccessful attempt to adapt the "Junior" cartoon strip by Georges Wolinski to a live-action movie, director Patrick Schulmann has been unable to capture the tension he first poses between a father (Aldo Maccione), once involved in the 1968 May student demonstrations, and a son (Junior, played by Riton Liebman) who is a buttoned-down conservative. One of the scenes with unrealized potential is when both father and son separately try to extricate a young man from his unwanted job at a brothel. As in some other adaptations from cartoons, the actors are unable to get past the limitations of the script.
