Didier is an unusual film about a dog becoming a man, keeping his dog's mind.
It deals with a humorous tone with more serious things, and the fact that Alain Chabat wrote the script and is the main protagonist is a plus - but also shows the limits. A few nice, very funny moments, smart and hilarious lines "hey you treat him real bad. You talk to him like he's a dog".
Shot in Montpellier, Southern France, it's a pleasant film for an hour or so. It won't change your life but was never meant to. Kept a bit shorter, it would have been better even, the end is slow to come.
