Synopsis:
Francis (Michel Serrault) is stressed. He is struggling with a rebellious workforce at his factory and being hounded by the taxman. His snobby wife and daughter are extravagantly planning a society wedding with what little money he has left. Francis wants a way out. Whilst watching a TV programme, he is shocked to see a woman with two daughters give a passionate speech about her long-lost husband who looks surprisingly just like him. Francis puts himself forward as her husband and enters a more relaxed lifestyle on a farm with his sexy new wife and daughters. He thinks his problems are over, but soon realises the life he has stepped into isn't as perfect as he thought!

Too slow - Happiness Is in the Field review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I have found this film a bit slow and predictable. The acting is very good but unfortunately the film is at least half an hour too long and it made me yawn more than laugh.

Hilarious comedy - Happiness Is in the Field review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
14/11/2011

This is a great film. First rate acting (including a small part for Eric Cantona) and extremely funny and beautifully photographed. What is particularly notable is the 'maleness' of it-it is a satire on snobbish, bourgeois women and admiration for sexier, more natural types. The best-drawn character is that of Francis's friend, a 'macho' if ever there was one, who acts as a magnetfor females. Very, very funny: a great portrait of old France!
