Goofs

At the beginning of the scene where Tanguy rushes out the stairs and asks his mother for a shirt (she actually threw away), we can see Éric Berger's head as he's waiting in the stairs to appear. See more »

A very funny French film, with little plot, but lots of charm.
19 February 2002 | by (Reading England) – See all my reviews

Tanguy made me laugh even though my understanding of French is far from perfect. The plot is simple - life in his parents Paris apartment is so pleasant Tanguy a post grad student is still there at 28 years old but his parents secretly want him out!

Sabine Azema (Tanguys mother) was so funny that she really made the film for me. Don't miss it if you like to laugh!
