What French amateurs can do at its worse

4 May 2006
If a note zero could be given to a comedy, this movie would deserve it.
The story just tries to find any opposite view to present childhood
stories and glues on top of it whatever humor it can find. The
disconnect is so large that humor falls flat and makes me the spectator
feel embarrassed for watching all this stupidity. There are two things
which bother me further. Jean-Claude Sussfeld, in an interview, claims
he has worked 15 years as director's assistant in other movies and now
feels good to manage it himself. Definitely above his capabilities.
Further, an impressive panel of actors flow through the movie. Mostly
all of them come out flat and far of being funny. And here again one
has to severely criticize Sussfeld for his total lack of
cinematographic sense. Actors such as Clavier and Lhermitte have
exploded in pearls such as "Les Bronzés" and "Papy fait de le
résistance". Sad sad for these actors and for the French Cinema.
