Kennedy Et Moi/Kennedy and me-Sam Karmann follows the trend of including figures of American culture in a film's title.
6 September 2013 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

French cinema has always followed a healthy yet strong trend of making films which feature the names of some of American cinema's greatest actors. Some films which have followed this trend are: Travolta Et Moi directed by Patricia Mazuy and Adieu Gary directed by Nassim Amaouche. These films have paid rich tributes to John Travolta and Gary Cooper. The film "Kennedy Et Moi" directed by Sam Karmann also follows the same trend albeit with a difference as his film's title includes the name of one of America's most legendary families-Kennedy Family.Kennedy Et Moi is about a failed writer whose life changes forever when John.F.Kennedy makes an entry to his life. In a country famous for its morbid obsession with America,the making of Kennedy Et Moi is not at all a surprise. However,this film has its own share of problems.It suffers enormously from the inadequacy of the script as nobody knows how Kennedy became an obsession for a failed writer.Apart from this minor yet important detail,it is felt that the depiction of mid life crisis in this film is not at all remarkable.One cannot do justice to mid life crisis merely by using force against all and sundry.In 1992,Sam Karmann directed a remarkable short film called "Omnibus".However,the talent which he displayed in that film is grossly missing in "Kennedy Et Moi" despite the benign presence of two great French actors-Nicole Garcia and Jean Pierre Bacri.
