Today's advice : Never emigrate in the open country
25 May 2000 | by (Versailles, France) – See all my reviews

Fane ( the as usual excellent Jean-Pierre Bacri ) lives in a poor quarter, drinking beers with pals most of the time. One day, he trades his neighbour's girl, the very 'shagadelic' Lilas ( the beautiful Pauline Lafont ) for a rabbit. The next day, learning her mother's death, he drives to her house, in a small village in the south of France, bringing Lilas with him. There, he mets Mo, his brother, disabled since he has played as a kid with hand grenades. Fane wants to marry Lilas, to become a writer and keep Mo out of the hospital. He wants to change, to make something of his life, but the jealousy and nastiness of the village will upset everything...

A poignant drama, magnificently played, with an Ennio Morricone-like music. One of the best movie of Pauline Lafont - who died in a car crash a few years later - and of J-P Bacri, before he started working, and living, with Agnes Jaoui. It's a bit sad, because everything goes wrong, but it's Truth. The description is very real. This movie shows why I'll never emigrate in a small village in the middle of nowhere. Gerard Krawczik made here a very good movie ; too bad he's also the one who recently made "Taxi 2".

8/10
