Unconvincing
1 February 2001 | by (Paris, FRANCE) – See all my reviews

Between comedy and drama, Origine Contrôlée fails on both sides. With a cruel lack of rhythm and originality in its situations and dramatic moments too weak and artificial, the movie never takes off. Over-written dialogues mixed with an unbelievable evolution of the relationship between the 3 leads doesn't give the audience a chance to fully enter the story. This is a movie that, perhaps, worked on the paper, but simply doesn't work on screen because of its inability to mix comedy ( with some really greasy moments) and its social content. While trying to do an "intelligent" comedy the british way, the two first-time directors prove you also need a perfectly written script to achieve so. And the starting point of the story here is so weak that the whole film collapses very quickly.
