An excellent movie
12 September 2004 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

Pascal Thomas never failed, his movies are always pieces of life with bigger than life characters. If you liked "pleure pas la bouche pleine", "le chaud lapin", "celles qu'on n'a pas eues" or "les femmes les maris les amants", well you'll like "La dilettante" too. I never really noticed Catherine Frot (who plays the lead character Pierrette). For me she was one of a hundred faces that we can cross in french cinema. I was sure she was a good actress but nothing more than that. In "La Dilettante" she explodes, her character is complex, with a mix of impudor and decency, quietness and madness... I'm not sure that a lot of people could play that and bring to life a such character. But Catherine Frot is not alone here. Famous or unknown faces perform extraordinary scenes, like JF Balmer as the president of a Trial court who is afraid to get bored... Pascal Thomas makes fun of the comedy of our lives. Once again. His characters are bought to life by their extraordinary well written lines and by the actors perfect work. Once again. I'll definitely give it a 10/10 even if there is a very very light lack of rhythm sometimes.
