Plot & Details

In this screwball comedy from France, Olivier Broche plays Daniel, a dim-witted tollbooth attendant in the French countryside who has always been fascinated by Paris, especially the Eiffel Tower, even though he's never actually been there. One day, despite the advice of his harridan mother (Micheline Presle), Daniel decides to strike out for Paris to visit his cousin Jacques (Francois Morel), who drives a taxi. Once he arrives in the City of Lights, Jacques offers to give Daniel a ride into town in his cab; however, he has to leave his hack in traffic for a moment, and Daniel is suddenly forced to drive a very pregnant woman to the maternity ward. Before long, Daniel has caused a massive auto wreck, landed in jail and finds himself in a mental hospital. The highlight of Le Voyage A Paris is Olivier Broche's deft comic performance as the bumbling Daniel, while director Marc-Henri Dufresne keeps the action moving at a brisk pace.
