Depardieu at his best in a financial disaster, 18 May 2006
Author: Julien C from Belgium

The best movie I can remember with Depardieu.

The plot is really good: talking about how one influent person can make the curves of the sugar rocket up artificially on the stock market whereas on the other side of the power a dumb ass losses all his money when the market crash down after somebody advised him to invest on sugar.

The two main characters are excellent. It might look a bit overacted sometimes. But it is lovely to see them doing it like that.

I would compare it to other financial movies like "Boillers room", "Wall street" and a book that I really like from Zola: "l'argent" (the money). But it has a ironic french touch in the dialogs that the two American movies don't have.
