Storyline

Alfred has always been down on his luck. An unlucky baby, he turns into... an unlucky child before metamorphosing into... an unlucky teenager! As an adult, he manages to become an architect but the buildings he designs invariably collapse. Fed up with such an ungrateful destiny, Alfred decides to throw himself into a canal. But for once being unlucky is a... stroke of luck, since he not only fails his suicide but he also meets Agathe, a beautiful TV host, who finds herself at the same place for the same reason. Instead of taking their own lives, the two young people save each other. Will love and luck be Alfred's new companion as of this moment? Written by Guy Bellinger

Funny and warm film - French Laurel and Hardy in a solo performance
7 December 2001 | by (New York, US) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Pierre Richard plays a character much resembling the one he portrayed in La Chevre, although drawn with much more subtlety. Very fast paced at the start the movie gradually slows down, turning into a romantic comedy. Never dull, bringing Monty Python skits to mind at times. Behind the witty plot is a French writer, Roland Topor. No sledgehammer "Naked Gun"-like humor in this one, but if you like a good laugh and a good plot you should see it.
