"Franȯis has convinced his wife and nearly everyone else that he is a pleasant, downtrodden civil servant who has been immured in a dead-end job. In reality, he is a very competent secret operative for the government. Meanwhile, Helene, the mother of his two children, has grown bored with her dull husband and is considering whether or not she should have an affair with an attractively sleazy used-car salesman who has been feeding her his standard seduction line: that he's a secret agent (which, in his case, is a lie). When Franȯis discovers this, he concocts a plan to teach his wife a lesson, which grows unexpectedly complicated when the two of them stumble across an international arms-smuggling cartel."--All Movie Guide
