En Bordee was released in English-speaking countries under the title A.W.O.L. Sure enough, the film focuses on the misadventures of two sailors who end up absent without leave in a foreign port. It all begins quite innocently, when our heroes are put ashore to seek out a friend of the admiral and deliver an invitation to an engagement party, held in honor of the admiral's daughter. The two gobs inevitably end up in a "red light" district, where they have a high old time extricating themselves from the clutches of the local hookers and "mecs." En Bordee was designed as a vehicle for the popular French comedian Bach, who plays the denser of the two sailors.
