Diappointment
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't hide it: I am a fan of Lelouch. So when I have a chance to see one of his movies or buy a DVD, I just do it. "L'aventure c'est l'aventure" is however low in terms of filming. The most annoying is the time it takes Lelouch to move on in the movie, once the humorous scene has been plotted and showed. Yes there are good moments, but in between these, ... it gets boring. And then the actors. Lino Ventura plays his 23d times same character in a lame and unconvincing way; Jacques Brel does not fit in the movie, whatever his talent might be; Charles Gerard and Charles Denner play their usual role; and finally Aldo Maccione is worth seeing once. Rating in IMDb according to me is far too high. Just for comparison, take another Lelouch, "The cat and the mouse", and let me know. That is what I call a good Lelouch movie: its construction, its moving camera and great natural actors performance.
