SYNOPSIS

Bernard, a playboy in Paris, has an insatiable appetite for beautiful women. His three girlfriends are all air hostesses- working for a variety of different airlines- however, each believes she is his one true love, and accordingly they must never meet. Bernhard has devised a sophisticated timetable to organise his love affairs. Bertha , Bernhard’s sardonic and overworked housekeeper, has a hard time managing his complicated love life, preparing special diets for each woman and generally keeping track of what is going on. Everything proceeds like clockwork, until the new ‚Super Boeing’ changes the schedules of the airlines, and Bernhard is suddenly landed with a triple problem! His old school friend, the unworldly Robert, arrives unexpectedly from England and unwittingly joins them in a hysterical whirlwind of mayhem and matchmaking!

Deliriously funny” Variety
