As a French myself, I could be believed to have a tendency to over-rate french movies... well, as a matter of fact, I don't like french movies, they're too sad, too dark, too slow and really too boring... :-) Viva US SFX movies, those are entertaining, first role of the cinema, right ?
Well, you can trust my impartiality here, this movie is GOOD.
Finally, being French is not that bad anymore... :-)
This movie is funny, never slows down, but also has a message, not a boring one though...The actors are wonderful, especially the one playing Maxime (to me that is), and all have *the* role "tailored" for them...
One reproach : it's a little bitty long to begin, but it's too short... not that bad a reproach :-)
I've seen it twice, and it's even better the second time...
So, when it's released where you live (the english version should be called "My little business", how surprising :-) ), go see it, give it a try, you won't be disappointed !!!
