Cruchot and his gendarmes from Saint-Tropez receive a highly responsible government mission - to ensure the safety of four young beautiful female gendarmes officers. In a few days they begin to be abducted by mysterious villains.
Louis de Funès,
Probably made to capitalize on the success of the "Gendarme De Saint-Tropez "saga of which the director,Richard Balducci ,wrote one of the episodes .
A cursory look at Balducci's filmography does not bode well;this postman story is worse than the worst movie of the Gendarme saga ,which at least featured a talented comic actor (De Funès).
This postman sees pollution infiltrate all over his native Provence and mounts a crusade against the mayor (Marion Game) and her henchmen (including the late Michel Galabru,who was featured in the Gendarme saga);but the mayor's daughter is in love with the postman's son and the mailman has more than one trick up his sleeve ...
This is more a desultory succession of sketches than a real screenplay,each one lousier than the one before;the last one -the postman finds oil on the Mediterranean beach- takes the biscuit!
One can save,at a pinch,two good ideas:the dog receiving a recorded parcel and having to sign with his leg;the disgusted fisherman leaving his mullets to the hero and his pal.
Even the Provençal landscapes are ugly;note that the movie was released in Summer,the duds season in France.
