Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

Haragon Louis De Funes is such a miserable miser that he even steals oats from horses in this comedy from celebrated playwright Moliere. The story remains true to the original, but the combined effort between Girault and De Funes remains uneven. Still, the film will satisfy the fans of De Funes, one of France's more beloved screen comics.
