Routine comedy, but for Adjani's performance
7 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Pinoteau was a journeyman director who made some hits using box office stars like Lino Ventura, Pierre Richard and Sophie Marceau. This film would pass unnoticed were it not for the astonishing presence of Isabelle Adjani, only 18 at the time. You just can't take your eyes off her as long as she's on screen. The abrupt adolescent gestures of rage and frustration are impressive to watch.

Lino Ventura and Annie Girardot play the parents; they're both great to watch. Ventura was an action star who could play comedy well. His slow-burn reactions to his daughter's emotional excesses provide much of the fun.
