Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this French crime comedy, the headmaster of a school located near a prison is inadvertently involved in stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. The trouble begins with one of his students who is, unbeknownst to the headmaster, the son of a famous art thief. The father has been planning the robbery for a long time and this is why the boy is enrolled in the school. When the father innocently asks the headmaster if he can stay for a while at the school, the headmaster is happy to oblige him and even ends up helping him pull off the heist. Later, the school boys rally together to help their poor teacher return the painting. In the end the schoolmaster is considered a national hero.
