Fernandel is a French farmer forced to work in Germany during WW II. He decides to escape back to France, and, borrowing a cow (Marguerite), he sets out to walk across Germany. The strange pair have a number of odd adventures, and when Fernandel has to leave the cow at the bank of a river

while he rows across, the cow finds a pontoon bridge and rejoins him. Finally Fernandel reaches France but is spotted by collaborationist police. He jumps on another train, which is headed back to Germany. One of Fernandel's lesser films, but still funny and charming. (In French; English

subtitles.)
