I've seen Les Grands Ducs recently, because some of my friends have recommended it to me as a cult comedy. Well, they were right : it's a fast, funny and sometimes pathetic comedy, even if the cinematography is a little too shaky. The style of the movie is like the meeting of the Marx Brothers films - the director Patrice Leconte is a great fan of their comedies - with another Leconte's movies, like Tandem. I especially enjoyed the character of Michel Blanc, who made me think about Wile Coyote in Warner's Looney Tunes, and the great Jean-Pierre Marielle, who is really fun to watch in drag!
