  • René the café owner's trying to cooperatate with the Resistance while putting on a good face for the Nazis. With an annoying wife, a German military officer with a crush on him and a moron of an policeman for help this isn’t as easy as it looks.

    The thing I’ve always found particularly charming about this show is the fact that French people are those who speak English with a French accent whilst if you’re German you have a German accent. But where they really hit a home run is with the English policeman whom is supposed to have learnt French and thus pronounce some English words wrong, so everything he says is hilarious. Other than that I find the whole set up of the show, how it’s more like a play rather than a standard sit-com, to be good. With costume changes and added out-door scenes since it’s all shot in a studio and René’s monologues to the audience to give a résumé of what has happened all add to make the show more charming.
