Storyline

Two scriptwriter friends with clashing personalities decide to write a contemporary political film. The difficulties are enormous. Traps abound. They stray from the plot, argue and make up, with their lives constantly intertwined with the exemplary story of the "Moliterno & co." Garage. Gigi and Jean Do repair cars. Lola then polishes them while Marthe makes out the bills. Grandpa teaches the baby Italian revolutionary songs while Vanessa and Mouloud sell flowers and sea urchins at the market. The entire family works their fingers to the bone, twelve hours a day, seven days a week to get by in this time of high unemployment. But then, globalization sails onto the horizon and a multinational threatens to rock this "raft of the Meduse". Our heroes take up arms. With the support of the entire population, they triumph, as befits a tale set in Estaque. Written by Anonymous

anti-realist gem, "One Night at Mr Cool's" à la française
18 July 2001 | by (Basel) – See all my reviews

"À l'attaque" is one of the best french films i've seen this year, and it will stay one of the best if not the best of 'em all. The films tells the story of two screenwriters - the younger guy mostly writing, the older guy mostly critizising the younger guy. They tell us - meta film y'all! - the story of an Italian French clan striving to survive in the city that's ruled by ruthless globalizing capitalists who want to ruin their business. A very funny comedy as well as a parody and strong social criticism - all in one!
