Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This engaging comedy concerns the tattoo on the back of a military nobleman and the wily art dealer who covets the work of art. The Count (Jean Gabin) has a Modigliani tattoo, and when Mazeray (Louis De Funes) sees it, he wishes to add it to his art collection. The Count only wishes to retire to a life of good wine and fine food, but the maniacal Mazeray will stop at nothing to obtain the Modigliani, even if it means skinning the Count alive. Gabin and De Funes combine their legendary comedy stylings that have long endeared them to film fans far beyond their native France.
