Intrigued is what I felt when I bought my ticket, surprised is what I felt when the movie started, but what exactly is what I felt when I left the theater ? I still don't know, but it felt good.
Michel Blanc is more used to making funny movies (either as an actor or as a director), and is very good at that. But here, that's a totally different kind of movie. Here he goes deeper into human relationships by trying to understand what happens when a human being freaks out.
The story of Pierre, leaving his whole life behind to flee to London, escaping something (but what, really ?) is just what could happen to the guy next door, or even to you. And therefore, you see the movie with a totally different perspective, getting in the stead of this guy, seeing and understanding what happens to him, and saying to yourself "gosh, this could be me".
Pierre's freaking out and all that happens thereafter, is so very understandable that it makes the movie reach you to your deepest core. You take the character in sympathy, feel like he's someone you know. And when he trips, you trip along with him.
In the end, I spent a very good time watching this movie though I just didn't really know what to expect (my girlfriend took me to seeing it). This movie leaves you with a sensation inside, but what kind of sensation, I'm unable to describe... But it was NOT the sensation of having lost my time.
