get back to the early Sixties, and .... marvel all the way down !
3 September 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Des pissenlits par la racine' (sorry, I can't translate this well) truly makes a great comedy. Carried on by fine dialogs, keeping a steady pace all the way down, and surprising you with many twists & turns.

Its cast is a well-chosen mixture of young and old, containing some of France's greatest names back then. Louis de Funes for instance, who surely adds an extra 10%.

Nevertheless you should be aware that 'pissenlits' dates from the early 1960-s. The youth revolution hadn't happened yet, so consequently this film shows morals & behavior that don't fit in nowadays anymore.

This gap is illustrated best by young Mireille Darc. She does well in this film, but one wonders if she's fully with her heart in it. Anyway, Mireille's style in 'pissenlits' differs light years from that of her later acting.
