I hate dogs and I hate football...
16 July 2004 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

... but, my goodness, I LOVE THIS FILM!!!

This is one of the most original films I've ever seen. Alain Chabat was a good actor and comedian in other films, but here he delivers an ace performance. Outstanding, I've never seen anything like this. Sorry, if I sound simply overwhelmed, but, well, I am! I take my hat off.

But to be fair, I also have to mention Jean-Pierre Bacri, who is equally joyful to watch because he plays his part so very straight-faced that for the viewer it is easy to accept a crazy and completely unrealistic story as realistic. As if it could happen to yourself, just like this.

In this film you don't get to see the typical fooling about you see so very often in other French comedies. That's why this film is a little gem, which shouldn't be missed by anybody. For everybody who is not able to understand enough French, my DVD for example comes from Southeast Asia, it has (if horrible) English subtitles. So there are ways for everybody to see this beauty.

Unfortunately, I just read somewhere there are plans to do a remake of this film in the US. Please, don't be stupid, don't do a remake. The film is perfect as it is, no remake is necessary and anyway, it could only be a cheap, useless, superfluous copy. Stay with the original. Please.

10 out of 10. Honestly.
