A lesson in clumsiness
15 August 2008 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

"Drôle de samedi" begins with lots of promises in the credits. It is based on a short story by Friedrich Dürrenmatt, and it has many French celebrities playing the key roles: Francis Huster, Jacques Villeret, Michel Blanc, Carole Laure... Yet after the promises comes the disaster

  • and it is hard to believe that so many famous actors have been


gathered in such an amateurish enterprise. The most famous actors in this movie have rarely been so badly directed, but besides this, the major part of the people in it are not actors at all, and did not benefit from a proper direction either; which admittedly gives a certain "local colour" to the movie, but also makes it impossible to take seriously. What was meant to be a satire of the modern world, addressing questions such as the frantic pace of modern life, or the relations between men and women at the end of the 20th Century, rapidly turns into an apex of grotesque and confusion. Those who would choose this movie because they like Dürrenmatt or Francis Huster run the risk of being seriously disappointed by it. However, those who find entertainment in bad acting and clumsy film-making (two features that the director manages to combine, since he plays himself one of the protagonists) will enjoy "Drôle de samedi" - especially if they are natives from Neuchâtel, the small town in Switzerland where the movie was shot. It is, indeed, a very funny movie; yet not, unfortunately, for the reasons that its director had in mind when he made it.
