Near the top of my all-time favorite laugh.
17 June 1999 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

In the beginning of movie, there was Buster Keaton, (and Chaplin to a lesser extent), then, there were Laurel & Hardy, Jerry Lewis and Woody Allen. Whichever way you look at it, there wasn't too many films who got the crowd laughing out-loud. Michel Blanc did it for me as an actor. This is one of the only two films he made so far. The funniest, if not very original, of them. It has the same texture as Patrice Lecompte's pics Blanc played in.

The second film Blanc made, Grosse fatigue, has a texture not unlike Bertrand Blier films Blanc played in.
