Cracking comedy with excellent cast !
23 August 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I laughed throughout the whole film and found the dialogues so well written : in fact I think that Michel Audiard is a bit like a French Woody Allen, as his scripts and characters remind me of some of his work; parodies and caricatures of all classes, with such losers as Antoine Robineau (Jean Carmet), Foisnard (Jean Rochefort) and Gérard (Jean-Pierre Marielle) who are all great actors.

You feel attached to their characters in a way, however low and annoying they can be. Jane Birkin looks so sexy, lively and shows a good sense of humour, particularly in a scene that suggests a bad and tacky copy of a famous show in Paris...

Very funny and well acted movie that deserves to be better known !
