    Anything to Declare?

    By Maurice Hennequin & Pierre Veber
    Directed by Benny Sato Ambush

    Paris, 1912. The well-to-do Dupont family is thrilled that their naïve young daughter Paulette has married Count Robert de Trivelin. But upon returning from their honeymoon, it’s learned that the young bridegroom has yet to consummate the marriage. He suffers from a psychological block brought on by a border crossing train guard yelling out a phrase at the, uh…um, most inopportune moment. Since that disruption, the Count has been unable to perform his marital duty. With only three days left to meet his incensed mother-in-law's demand for the promise of a grandson, the Count seeks the assistance of Zeze, a courtesan passing herself off to her clientele as a prominent artist. Dupont family members manage to parade through Zeze's salon and back to the Dupont home, along with a sobbing ex-suitor of the bride, acamel dealer of unknown origin, and a maid desperate to break ties with Zeze and start a career of her own. The clock ticks away, doors slam, identities are mistaken, and all hell breaks loose as a chaotic race to consummate the marriage by the deadline catapults the action to….well, a climax!
