Bacri's character is sick and tired of his spouse,his work (as a writer running out of ideas),his offspring,his doctor,his dentist,his friends,the whole world.Like Mickael Douglas in "falling down" ,he goes off the rails:but whereas Schumacher's hero opts for violence,Bacri's character chooses a provocative way.He 's sparing of gestures ,but his sullen looks are priceless.
He seems to live in another world,which he has built from start to finish from his shrink's watch which might have belonged to Kennedy (hence the title).The scene on the boat -which features a very funny cameo by Jean-Claude Brialy- climaxes the movie ,with its despise of the family values (shall I bring back the wreath?).A short movie (about 80 minutes) but delightfully unpolitically correct.
