Wonderful, very likable characters, one would like to meet them in real life
14 March 2006 | by (Denton, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film. Except for Monsieur Morand, the characters are all likable (even Mme Morand). One almost shares the indignation of Mme Morand when she cries: "We should have been warned about the police raid beforehand, we pay them enough". One would like to help the criminals ! When in a later part of the film Pauline makes a move to befriend the girlfriendless Bruno, we are happy for him.

There are many enjoyable details one needs to pay attention to, some of them without words. When Morand is arrested, there is a huge TV set in his cell. When crooked politicians supporting him are also arrested one after another, one sees how his prison cell looses gradually its expensive look and contents, and in the end only a small portable radio remains.

The opening scene with its suspense, literally and figuratively, seems like taken out of silly Hollywood suspense movies, but when that scene returns much later even that moment (the only one I did not like) acquires a logical sense. The authors play well, as Kelly from Arizona points out. Three dogs and one cat play well too; how this was achieved is hard to figure out if you are not an animal trainer.

Views of the French Riviera and of some well known places in Marseilles are an added bonus - and somehow make the antics of the heroes even more believable.
