a more or less successful comedy
2 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

It's the "Inconnus"'s first movie for the screen and they made a funny and entertaining comedy. But it's not sufficient to consider it as a masterpiece. Three men who are very different are discovering that they are brothers. They 're also discovering that they're going to inherit a fortune that used to belong to their mother. But the inheritance is cancelled and they must escape from the police, the notaries, the bailiffs. Now that they are in the street, they've got to beg for but at the same time, they're learning to know each other better.... The film won the Oscar for the First Best film in 1996 but did it really deserve it? The "Inconnus"'s performance is quite convincing and each of their character's personnality is well portrayed. It's a pity that they often ham it up. The screenplay is a bit of a mess and I am under the impression that it's a pretext for a succession of sketches where they are talking about leading subjects nowadays: unemployement, immigration etc.... Due to a big number of these sketches, the film never seem to end. Moreover, the secondary and minors actors are bad used. On one hand, they are left to themselves, like the notary; on the other hand, they're falling into the caricature like Rougemont who is the man who puts Didier Latour up, or the racist bailiff. I also noticed that most of the actors were talking very fastly and so it was difficult to understand them. Nevertheless, the film is often funny thanks to the dialogues and the comical situations but they aren't deprived of vulgarity. To sum up: a film which could have been better if it had been more controled.
