For Yves Montand fans only...
6 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

....the others can take to their heels.Yves Montand overacts in such a smug way he is thoroughly unbearable.The screenplay is very thin and boring and the lines are devoid of wit (maybe someone like Henri Jeanson could have enlivened things a bit) .Isabelle Adjani portrays a student of the prestigious ecole polytechnique -think that it was 1972 before a woman could enter this school!-who takes care of her family,since her father (Montand) has got so many plans it always leads him to nowhere .Singer Alain Souchon plays a journalist,Quentin,in love with Adjani.He does not add anything,since his field is singing and he does not sing.

"All fire and fury" the title reads,describing Montand's character.It's wishful thinking.
