Back into mainstream,without tears....
2 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

After an intriguing offbeat movie where he directed Rita Hayworth ,"La Route de Salina" and where he showed some ambition -it happened several times in his career-,Georges Lautner returns to Georges Lautner's style: a good old Comédie à la Française .This one is rather pleasant and the talented Michel Constantin and the brat make a nice pair.As for Mireille Darc, not exactly my kind of actress, she is passable.The screenplay is solid,the lines are often funny and the kid is of course a naughty boy.

If you want to have fun,this movie is your cup of tea.But if you are a Bergman fan,well..
