Additional Info

A Rise in the Market mixes broad comedy with sharp satire as it pokes fun at the fat cats of the European Community the Common Market. Sir Clive Partridge hopes to be the new president, but he needs the support of puritanical elder statesman Jacque Berri. It's bad news for Partridge when Berri calls on a day that he is trapped in a luxurious Paris flat where he is beset by glamorous young women he can't account for, plus an angry wife and an exploding boiler. What's in the big, brown paper parcel? And why do Partridge's clothes keep dissappearing? Wild mishaps and comic confusion abound right up to the hilarious climax.
