Not so bad, not so good...
12 May 2008 | by (Geneva, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

*minor spoiler ahead*

The main idea is quiet good, but unfortunately Arnaudy is not Raimu (nor Fernandel).

He lacks the charisma of those two.

The dialogs are not bad, but I guess this movie would have been much better with one of the above mentioned actors, as the cook.

I think, with his "truculence" (~vividness/colourfulness), Raimu would have eventually match with this cook,

who runs a restaurant in which you can only smell the meals,

but not taste nor eat them...

So, in one sentence : could have been much more funny !
