In this oddball romantic comedy, love and some oh so beloved relatives keep a bourgeois policeman busy. In a sleepy village in the forests of the Vosges, policeman Pierre Perdrix has a routine existence. The toughest task he faces is keeping his slightly odd family under control: after the death of his father, his mother is enjoying a flourishing sex life and his brother consolidating his status as an expert on earthworms, which leaves his ping-pong obsessed daughter cold. But when eccentric Juliette’s car is stolen by a group of radical nudists, family life is turned upside down.
