Storyline

In this road comedy from France, the goal is a convent where a woman at death's door and the travelers are her husband (a philosopher who has been in a madhouse since trying to strangle the woman for adultery but who is now summoned to say goodbye to her), his sidekick from the madhouse (a charming but ungovernable simpleton), his psychiatrist (the nebbish trying to keep the journey going), and his psychiatrist's girlfriend. That the patient's history may foreshadow the psychiatrist's is only one of the many problems. Written by Nozz

A little disturbing
28 September 2002 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

On the one hand, this is the sort of a comedy where an auto can run off the road and flip over and nobody's hurt. On the other hand, it begins and ends with some very realistic (or real) mentally deficient people and it doesn't seem to place much value on light-heartedness. Michel Piccoli as a man institutionalized for homicidal rage is not very frightening and certainly not very amusing; more than those, he's affecting. The movie may be trying for the sort of melancholy whimsy that succeeded in _King of Hearts_ (also about mental cases) but if so, it involves us too much in the sadness.
