A pearl of French cinema
16 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

Though the title might imply the movie being a bad porn flick, it actually turns out to be yet another pearl of French cinema.

Claire's 35th birthday is coming up and she has strongly decided to get married. She invites three substantial grooms for dinner, with the goal of choosing one of them as her future husband. The evening doesn't go exactly as planned and as one thing leads to another; soon Claire's apartment has turned into a house of horrors as more bodies start piling up in Claire's bathtub.

This movie once again proves how better movies are made when profit is not the only goal to achieve. The story is absolutely brilliant! What makes the movie even more amazing is that it's set in one apartment and all the events happen during one night. It's one of those movies that when you come out of the cinema it feels like it lasted only half an hour, but in reality was an hour and a half.

Director/script writer James Huth has done a brilliant job in organizing everything so that everything works perfectly and the audience can't stop laughing. There are no unnecessary moments and every scene leads to another, even funnier one. And yes, do watch this one before they make the American version.
