Sweet, funny, and absurd., 5 July 2011
Author: runamokprods from US

A sweet, whimsical, slightly absurd French comedy.

A young tour guide is spotted as the unknown son of a famous dead New Wave film maker.

While he's skeptical at first, he never did know his own father, so who knows?

And suddenly a world of artists, actresses, etc. open up to him, as he 'finds' himself in what might be a complete fiction.

This garnered critical reaction all over the spectrum, though mostly positive, some raving.

I'll go with funny and clever, but I'm not sure I buy it as the deep work of art that some see. Still, I'd be happy to re-visit.
