From the classic 1964 movie, Le Gendarme de St Tropez.
Gendarme Cruchot (de Funès) wants to impress his new boss, sergeant major Gerber (Michel Galabru) during a petanque party with his deputies. As usual, it backfires.
Besides being funny as hell, it depicts so well how petanque can - and should - be played anywhere. A Sunday afternoon picnic in the woods? Bring out the boules.
