Good old days, 15 April 2008
Author: sergey-dio from Russian Federation

Oh, I'm not completely agree with the previous review of that film, because author says that it's not funny at all. Yes, it's not a hilarious french comedy like Oscar, Gendarmes or something like that. That film goes in the way of Sabrina (I mean early films with Audrey Hepburn), because I think it more American feel there than french. The cast is good. Women plays good parts. The father of the family is outstanding, especially in the very beginning of the film. And there is a little gem. A wonderful part by Louis de Funes. He is at his best there, but this episode is so short. (Approx. 3 min.). So i give 76 out of 100
