Another coarse comedy in those heavenly places:the barracks.From Georges Courteline ,whose plays often deal with the joys of the military service.This is a film by Maurice Tourneur ,who made "Les Gaietés de l'Escadron" the previous year ,and it is more of the same. The only difference is that it's a short.All the action takes place in a barrack-room -with the exception of a scene in a nightclub where the squaddie is getting drunk-.When the drunken soldier ,la Biscotte, comes back ,his friend Lidoire (Fernandel) has to take care of him,which is not an easy task: he will not be rewarded for having done it.Moderately funny.
