Storyline

Pierre is a hotel cashier in Vichy, so shy that he answers an ad from the Psychology Institute and can't say no to the salesman, Aldo; he spends 6,000 francs on tapes, books, and a punching bag. Soon after, he's smitten by Agnes, a hotel guest with a model's looks and photographers wherever she goes. When she leaves for Nice, he follows, meeting Aldo on the way. Aldo becomes his boldness coach. Pierre gets a job washing dishes where Agnes is staying, but after a week or so, she's off to Deauville, with Aldo and Pierre in pursuit. Using funds they get by selling Aldo's car, this time Pierre poses as a polo-playing jet setter. Will this win the heart of Agnes? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

old memories
3 March 2004 | by (MEXICO) – See all my reviews

Once, France was the world capital of comedy and Pierre Richard was one of their very best comedians. It's a period that looks completely forgotten today, but I grew up with this stuff and I think I still carry the "marks" and the influence in my personality. Particularly from movies like this one, that in the time I thought was made specially for me. A guy, too shy to... even live, in his personal fight to "get better", with the help of a friend that he gets in the way and slowly he WILL gain self confidence and determination, but only after a lot of laughs. My favorite joke of the film is the scene of practice his self confidence in a restaurant. More than classic! They just don't make them like that any more 8)
