A bit slow - but worth watching
17 August 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

I am English but am living temporarily in Paris. I've just sat down to watch the DVD (original version with English subtitles). Although the film is a bit slow it does hold your attention long enough to enjoy it. It's a frustrating escapade sprinkled lightly with a few hilarious moments. I couldn't stop laughing when Maxime said he was disappointed in Lucie because she agreed to help with the fraud. It was worth watching for that scene alone.
