The title of this French seriocomedy translates to This Pretty World. Yves Denaud plays a gangster boss who decides to infiltrate High Society, the better to become reacquainted with the son he hasn't seen for 25 years. Much to Denaud's chagrin, Sonny Boy (played by comic actor Darry Cowl) is as prudish and moralistic as his dad is not. This personality conflict pays off in some big laughs, though not all the humor is in the best of taste. The ever-increasing popularity of Darry Cowl enabled Ce Joil Monde to attain excellent bookings throughout France.
