Storyline

Dutillard is an amateur film maker working as a computer programmer for a small French investment bank. When the bank finds that it has been forced to fork over $104 million to fund Dutillard's film, Chekov's "Three Sisters", and that it has no legal recourse against him, the bank must find a way to make the film profitable. They float around a few ideas including a nude gang bang with the prettier sister, but the horrified Dutilliard comes up with a plan, buy the rights to a blockbuster and package the TV rights with those for the Three Sisters. Before they know it the bankers find them self flying to London and New York to raise money and buy a major film studio. Written by Peter Clay

Hilarious
15 August 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Watching a group of "suits" attempt to rewrite Chekhov's "Three Sisters" in order to make it more attractive to the audience of today so they can recoup a gigantic loss which has been incurred by an eager but profligate film maker is hilarious. We follow the group from London to New York as they try to get their bank out of serious debt. Totally original, extremely classy and yet another example of why French films continue to be a force in cinema, it constantly delivers laughs while having a subtle dig about films today, what sells them and why they are watched. A perceptive observation of how today's films have been hijacked by those who can only seen the "bottom line" is delivered with comical flair.
