Predictable, but engaging anyway.
15 August 2000 | by (Québec) – See all my reviews

La Vérité si je mens is not a movie that will enter in the history of movies, but if you happen to see it, you will probably like it. The movie is about Eddie(Richard Anconina), a man who is accidently mistaken for a Jew and, because of this mistake, enters a small Jewish community in Paris. The main industry in this community is textile. Eddie starts out by working in a warehouse, but soon becomes a salesman and continues becoming more important in the community, until the fact that he is not Jewish comes back to give him problems. This not an original story, and the way it unfolds is not new, but I had fun watching this movie because the characters are engaging, the actors don't look like actors playing a role and this little Jewish community is a good place to be for an hour and a half. This is not a laugh-out-loud comedy, do if that is what you are looking for, you won't find it here. A nice movie, although not a great one. But, after all, it doesn't want to be a great one, just a good one.
