Nice bunch of actors but no script.
18 December 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Based on a one line idea, this very rarely seen Lelouch flick could have been a quite good short movie. Unfortunately, it apparently had to run as a 90 minutes feature without the amount of script material it needed to justify its length. As a result, the group of actors, as likable as they all can be, try very hard to compensate with a good deal of improvised dialog. None of which could be considered as totally entertaining for that matter. Charles Gérard, in particular, puts a lot of himself into the friendly touch shadowing a bit too much the rest of the cast. The proletarian extraction of the protagonists could have been an excellent element to make a point in that "would be" social satire, but the film never gets a real chance to get involved in any kind of political issue, or whatever... Claude Lelouch tried again the same kind of filming experiment one year later with the much more successful "L'Aventure, c'est l'Aventure". That one was really funny. "Smic Smac Smoc" is just a bit pleasant at times, but not to be really recommended, though. Just out of curiosity, try it but don't put your expectations too high.
