Either you love, either you hate this movie
3 June 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Either you love, either you hate this movie. Personally I love it ! and I know a lot of person who love it too ! The story is quite simple, the main character is named Oulage and is going to the house party of one of his friend "Brigitte" for the new year's eve. Oulage like Brigitte a lot and the other way too, bu they had never admitted it to each other. Oulage had the intention to say "I love you" to Brigitte during this party and everything seems to be perfectly planed ! Unfortunately for Oulage, things did not worked out exactly how they should have and this is basically it...

I have to agree that the story is not that great, but nobody like this movie because of the scenario. The real beauty of this movie is in the dialogs and some of the situations. It is almost mandatory to be a native French to understand the subtleties of the dialogs. It has also a lot of French "social references" that you may need to fully understand some jokes/dialogs.

Well, this is to me (and some friends) one of the funniest movie ever and I was surprised to meet some people (I had never talked to before) who turned to be some big fans of this movie and especially the dialogs, just like me.

A lot of dialog lines and intonations of the "Brigadier Schmitt" (brilliantly interpreted by Elie Semoune) are still used "in real life" for me and some friends.

Give a chance to this movie and don't expect to have a great scenario nor some great pictures, everything is in the dialogs and situations. Nowhere else !
