Ne prends pas le poulets pour des pigeons

Dated, ridiculous and absurd. "Mondo Cane" to modern men's eyes, looks like this. And its subject wouldn’t have place even in the worst sensationalist show of the worst regional TV. But if we try to imagine the 1962 society and the dissemination of information of the time we realize how "Mondo Cane" was surprising and innovative, and why it has so much influence on the world of cinema.
 The return of Michel Gentil, leaves us a bit 'confused. We left a happy Jean Rollin who had rediscovered the joy of directing and certain serenity. And why we find his "porn alter ego"? The mystery is not so interesting. The French director is in a movie just commissioned. Jean-Claude Benhamou already author and actor in "Les trottoirs de Bangkok" produces this 1985 film in which he is also one of the main actors. A paternity almost total which as Rollin says in an interview, pushes Benhamous to want to control almost everything.
So we can imagine the director who here is like an employee. I.e., he sits behind the camera, he does what he has to do and then come home with the salary in his pocket.
"Ne pas le prends poulets pour des pigeons" has its peak of interest in this genesis. For the rest there isn’t anything by Rollin cinema and even some ingenious idea. We talk about it, just for completeness.

This is a typical comedy of the period, which mixes screwball comedy and slapstick-based on a crime story.
The head of the narcotics police of Paris sends two policemen a little 'clumsy with a dog on the French Riviera to thwart a drug trafficking that is hidden behind a factory of carnival masks.
Indicated only for those who want to see everything, absolutely everything by French director.
