Very good and funny movie, by a great writer
26 November 2000 | by (Lyon, France) – See all my reviews

Michel Audiard, the great scenarist of cult movies like "Les tontons flingueurs" or "Les barbouzes" now direct this movie. You can find in this film all the elements that made him famous: great dialogs (really fun), lots of comic situations... The story is about a guy (Jean Carmet), who still lives with his mother, who try to sell some really awful alcohol to bar tenders. The only way for him to do this is to cry and invent himself an awful life. Then, he mets the beautiful Jane Birkin, who plays the role of a woman whose goal in life is to sleep with the less excinting guys on Earth. All the cast is great and you'll really enjoy this movie.
