This very funny film concerns a 50-year-old nebbish, Michel Serrault, who has never made it big in business because of his blah personality. To get around this problem he invents a fictitious English business partner named "Mr. Davis." With the help of Mr. Davis, Serrault's

financial-counseling firm skyrockets to success. The elusive Englishman lends an air of mystery to the company that investors find appealing, but the more money Serrault makes, the harder it is for him to keep up the charade. Serrault, who was a big hit in LA CAGE AUX FOLLES, turns in a solid

performance, as does the entire cast. Jean-Claude Carriere did a wonderful job adapting the script from a Jenaro Prieto novel (In French; English subtitles.)
