I was driven to watch this stupidity by a completely false review in a TV magazine. Although I had already been disappointed with Tonie Marshall's previous appearances or directions, I chose to see it because of Jean Yanne, who is one of my favorite actors. It took three countries (France, Belgium and Switzerland), six production outfits, two national sponsors and gratuities from Danielle Darrieux, Claudia Cardinale and Gena Rowlands, to raise enough money for this stupidity. Jean Yanne must have been in awful need of dollars to accept his few lightning appearances - although the part suited him perfectly - in such a badly conceived and directed movie. The only light in this darkness was the brief appearance of Mapi (Maria Pia? Marie-Pierre?) Galàn, in the first minutes of this movie. I see from her IMDB filmography that she can be seen in quite a lot of films, wish I could see that wonderful woman again. I am told that Tonie Marshall did a good job with her last production, VENUS BEAUTE, and I see she's got another on the way. I sincerely don't want to watch neither of the two. Most of the actors, however, including Yanne, Baye, Cluzet and Anémone, were at their best.Except Molly Ringwald: I see she has her bunch of fans, count me out, please. harry carasso, paris, france
