This was the penultimate film directed by Jean Boyer who began his career in 1930, focusing mainly on lightweight, commercial movies. In this case, Virginie might be a bit too fluffy, since the romantic comedy never gets very far below the surface, just like the boat on which it takes place. Olivier and Pierre (Jean-Marc Thibaut and Roger Pierre) have decided to sail to Argentina on their own large boat, and while on the ocean they plan on studying fish and filming their adventure (one is a scientist and the other a journalist). But fate steps in when the two rescue a pair of women, Betty and Brigitte (Michele Girardon and Mireille Dare), and as might be expected, a series of bumpy circumstances lead to romance all around.
