C'East Arrive a Oden is partly a serious adventure yarn, and partly a spoof of its own genre. A French acting troupe finds itself stranded in a far-flung British colony in India. The troupe's leading lady, Dany Robin, is almost immediately wooed by a native prince. The upshot of this flirtation has international ramifications: the prince refuses to sign an important treaty unless Robin becomes his bride. This doesn't sit well with Robin's lover, an English lieutenant, nor with the villains, who hope to topple the prince from his throne. Director Michel Boisrond adapted the screenplay from a novel by Pierre Benoit.
