Storyline

At a football match, an unscrupulous photographer, Michel Verdier, takes pictures of a celebrity couple. Magazine editors go with the photos even though the dominant figure in them is a chubby football fan. "So let him sue." When the magazine appears, the fan, Franck Bordoni, is fired since he was supposed to be at work. Bordoni comes to the magazine where, by coincidence, he meets Verdier. Verdier says he knows how to make some money. They go to a restaurant where Johnny Hallyday is leaving. Verdier has Bordoni take pictures with a cheap camera. When the celebrity assaults the patsy and smashes his camera ... Verdier gets some very lucrative shots. They get a tip that Isabelle Adjani has left her house. They arrive; Verdier pays off Adjani's neighbour. Verdier searches her garbage. Adjani has left for L.A. Verdier follows her, entrusting his keys to Bordoni. At Verdier's apartment, Bordoni takes a call for someone to shoot vanity photos of a millionaire's party. Bordoni goes there. ... Written by David Carless

Entertaining, and actual
30 July 1999 | by (paris, france) – See all my reviews

I went to this movie without knowing what to expect, and I spent a very good time. It is funny, perhaps a little bit overdone, well played and well cast. And an interesting topic, these days. Some good laughs, some great surprises!
