I didn't bother going to see this one at the cinéma as I had heard all sorts of comments about the low level finesse of the humour ... however I rented the Dvd recently and found the film quite entertaining. In fact my wife who is Algerian born French and who had seen the number one found the number two better than the number one, now that's unusual isn't it. The film is basically about the Jewish "pieds noirs" ( ex-inhabitants of the Algerian French and their descendants ) ; various comic situations arise when the family of clothiers try to sell models to a clothing discount store, called Euro Discount ( how original ) and who's boss is none other than Daniel Prévost, who played the tax inspector "Cheval" in Le Diner des Cons. Anyway there's a lot of fast-talking and pied-noir humour, as well as some romance, lots of lying ( hence the title ) and beautiful women. It really was a pleasant surprise, and I loved the performance by José Garcia who at one stage has to pass off for an irate ouzbeck buyer to a Tunisian clothers factory. Anyway there's a reasonable plot so the story and I would recommend the DVD. In addition to that, a rare thing on French Dvd's, there are English subtitles for non French-Speakers. A most laudable addition !
