Albert Dupontel at his best
21 May 2003 | by (Lyon, FRANCE) – See all my reviews

Absolutely hilarious, a must see for those who liked "c'est arrive près de chez vous" (Man bites dog), even though I still rank it a tone under, Bernie is a very funny, dark and absurd movie just like Albert Dupontel always makes..... Do not rent it if you are easily shocked, because the jokes tend to go quite far...
