Vive la difference
12 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Berri has a keen eye for the subtleties of flirting and baiting at a Jewish wedding. It is wryly amusing throughout with a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that captivates me. However, given that the tone is amusing and the events understated to begin with, the pacing is much too leisurely at times. And, there is one poorly-placed misfire of a gag about 20 minutes before the end that nearly robs the film of all its good will. Fortunately, it bounces back spritely after that with a delightful and fitting ending.

Those Berri afficienados looking for ascerbic wit and unforgettable characters will be disappointed. However, if your taste run toward the subtly droll comedy of the human condition, you will enjoy this genuinely observed slice-of-life.
