This story, simply and deeply magical, about these two friends who share a poor life, breath love, friendship and learning of life.
Francois Cluzet and Guillaume Depardieu are sensational all along the movie.
Cluzet is outstanding, he clearly knows that his life goes nowhere, he fears turning nuts, he's so funny...Depardieu is more naive and naturally optimistic, he's like a lost child, always between ground and clouds....
The movie is full of both realistic and burlesque humor...you cry and laugh at the same moment...simply magical and touching.....I love the Director, Pierre Salvadori, who touch your soul in every movie he makes...
For many reasons, one of my favorite movie ever....
