Hibernatus is a 1969 French-Italian comedy directed by Édouard Molinaro and written by Jean Bernard-Luc. It stars Louis de Funès as an industrialist named Hubert Barrère de Tartas.

Synopsis

A man frozen for 65 years is found in the ice of the North Pole by a scientific polar expedition. While he is brought back to life by professor Edouard Lauriebat (Michael Lonsdale), the man is identified as Paul Fournier, who was exploring the pole in 1905 and is now, thanks to hibernation, a 90 years old young man. Edmée de Tartas (Claude Gensac), born Fournier, is identified as the granddaughter of Paul and convinces her husband, Hubert Barrère de Tartas (Louis de Funès), that Paul must be given back to his family, while the government wishes to treat Paul as a research subject. After a kidnapping and a pursuit, the authorities reluctantly agree, but impose, for the sake of Paul's mental health, that his environment be the same as in 1905. As Paul thinks Edmée is his mother, Hubert must play the role of a man courting Edmée and Didier (Olivier de Funès), the son of Edmée and Hubert plays the role of a student living with the family. First under control, the situation gradually deteriorates especially when Paul's actions become a threat to Hubert's plan to marry his son to the daughter of Crepin-Jaujard, one of his business partners.

Ralph Milan is a contract killer who is paid to kill Louis Randoni, whose testimony in various trials could harm the organisation. Ralph waits for his prey in his hotel room, but is interrupted by his comical neighbour, a shirt salesman named François Pignon (Jacques Brel). Pignon, who is suicidal since his wife left him for a reputed doctor named Fuchs (Jean-Pierre Darras), tries to hang himself on the waterpipes, but only manages to cause a flood. Realizing that if Pignon tries to kill himself again the police will search the place, Milan offers to talk him out of it until after his assassination. Unfortunately Pignon starts irritating him more, and makes it more difficult for him to fulfill his contract killing.

The plot is based around a successful, yet very shy painter Yann (Pierre Richard) who is in love with a married woman Florence (Fanny Cottençon). When he finally manages to have a date with her in his apartment, he has to face big problems. His neighbour Boris, another painter (and an artist maudit) who is extremely jealous towards his young wife Éva, leaves his flat without his suitcase, and when Éva, dressed only in lingerie, runs out of the door to let him know, a draft of air closes her door and she has to ask Yann for help. Unfortunately, that is just the moment when both Boris and Florence turn up. The story gets even more complicated as Florence's husband also comes to Yann's flat, and when Yann, when joking, mistakes a toy gun for a real one, and lightly injures Boris. But eventually all comes to a happy end.

Paris, 6 juillet 1815. Le peuple français est inquiet pour son avenir : Napoléon ayant été vaincu à Waterloo, le pays se retrouve sans dirigeant. Talleyrand, ancien ministre des Affaires étrangères invite à dîner dans son hôtel Fouché ancien ministre de la Police et actuel chef du gouvernement provisoire pour en discuter et choisir un nouveau souverain pour la France. Commence alors un long duel verbal entre les deux hommes : Talleyrand pense qu'il faut revenir à la monarchie et mettre Louis XVIII sur le trône, Fouché hésite car il a autrefois voté l’exécution de Louis XVI et craint que son frère Louis XVIII ne le lui fasse payer. Fouché propose tour à tour Napoléon II, Louis Philippe d'Orléans ou le retour à la démocratie mais Talleyrand reste campé sur sa position. La joute tourne au règlement de comptes lorsque chacun commence à évoquer les crimes que l'autre a commis pour gravir les échelons.

1773. Le XVIII siècle peaufine son dernier acte. Louis XV s'apprête à quitter la scène, et en coulisse, déjà, Louis XVI se prépare. C'est le temps des grandes idées, et des mauvais sujets. Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, fils d'horloger, horloger lui-même, trouvait avec Voltaire que les pendules de son temps retardaient dangereusement. Il allait s'employer à les remettre à l'heure...
