    Subject

    "Golden Boy" is an average Frenchman married to an average Frenchwoman. Their life is transformed by a gigantic lottery win but the first glimpse of heaven quickly turns to hell. It must be even tougher for the doomed factory's two struggling owners, but thank goodness there are women to take control ! Thereby hangs the moral of the story : When men finally realise that they ought to stick to fishing and let women run things, tommorrow will be a better day !"
    (Jean-Pierre Vergne)
