typical french comedy
14 April 2004 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Obviously not designed for international audience, this movie is underrated as an example of the french humor. Luis Rego is big fun, as usual, and in my opinion this is the very best movie (I hesitate for 'le père Noël est une ordure') for Josiane Balasko. This is a french movie, about french social relations ( we found another good example in 'elle court elle court la banlieue') and lodging in Paris. a disgraced lower middle-class girl ( Josiane Balasko) seeks love and shares a flat with a glamour model who don't care about feelings.... Seems a quite complicated story at first but easy to watch and understand while you are in. There is not too much vulgarity in this movie ( for a french one, I mean) and the jokes and humorous situations are most often very good. A special mention to Luis Rego and Xavier Saint Macary. Just put the DVD in the box, relax and laugh. Don't think further more forget your sorrows and have a good time, that is my advice. France can produce good comedy, this is a very good example
