Full Plot

World War Two is raging but in the French village of Nouvion,cafe owner Rene Artois wants only a quiet life plus some slap and tickle with his waitress Yvette behind his sour wife Edith's back. To this end he keeps in with the two German officers who are cafe patrons,Von Strohm and Geering. He is therefore alarmed when Michelle of the Resistance declares his house a safe house for two British airmen,who have been shot down and who cannot understand French.He is also to host Roger LeClerc,a forger and old flame of his mother-in-law Fanny,sprung from jail by the Resistance but,due to a misunderstanding,mistakes Gruber,a gay German officer who fancies Rene, for Roger. Geering and Von Strohm discover the hidden Britishers but when Herr Otto Flick,of the Gestapo,arrives,they agree to help. This is because Flick is after a favourite painting of Hitler's,The Madonna With the Big Boobies,which they wish to keep for themselves. To this end they give their uniforms to the escaping airmen. don @ minifie-1 Rene runs a café in the small German-occupied town of Nouvion. He has a relationship with he local German commander, Colonel Kurt von Strohm, whereby Rene gets essential supplies such as butter and sugar and the Germans get to spend time with one of Rene's pretty waitresses.

As well, he is expected to provide shelter for their forger, Roger Leclerc. As if he doesn't have enough to deal with, von Strohm steals a valuable painting from the château they have commandeered for their headquarters, the painting of the fallen Madonna with the big boobies by van Klomp.
