A good french movie, no more, no less.
12 August 1999 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

One of my best friend is the principal character of this movie, his name is Fabien Chombart. In "Il est génial papy", he is so natural that it is an obligation for your brain to enjoy the show. But to be realistic, it is far from a masterpiece, just a good movie, thats'all.
