Plot Sypnosis:

2K Restoration by Gaumont! In La Chèvre, French comedy writing sensation Francis Veber (The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe, La Cage aux Folles) first teamed Tall Blond’s Pierre Richard with Gérard Depardieu (Buffet Froid, A Pure Formality), creating a wildly eccentric and guffaw-inducing duo unlike any the screen had ever seen before. After unsuccessfully searching for a French tycoon’s missing daughter in Mexico, tough-guy private eye Campana (Depardieu) is grudgingly saddled with accident-prone accountant Perrin (Richard), a would-be detective presumed to be so maladroit that he will unwittingly lead Campana to the missing girl. But once let loose in Mexico, the question becomes whether Perrin will crack the case or crack his own skull first. Depardieu and Richard’s comic chemistry buoys the anarchic slapstick and shaggy-dog story with gentle whimsy and graceful humanity. Though expertly evoking Hope and Crosby, the Pink Panther films and Buster Keaton, La Chèvre is catapulted into the pantheon of international movie comedy on the irresistible strength of its effortless and distinctively French flair. La Chèvre was remade in Hollywood as Pure Luck, starring Martin Short and Danny Glover.
