I really enjoyed watching this movie. It's true that it didn't surprise me much, and it was exactly what I expected, but still it was so funny.... I laughed from the beginning to the end. Of course I'm very tempted to compare it to "Les 3 frères" done by the same people (Les Inconnus) and there, I've got to say that it's not as good, because the first one really surprised everybody in the way they used their humor through a movie. This one is still the same humor, still as funny, a little more special effects and fantasy that add some more enjoyment without bringing sth really essential. The fact that it's based on a biblical story makes people see references here and there and interpretations that are really amusing. Well if u liked "Les 3 Frères" go see this movie, if u haven't well u might enjoy it even more since u won't know their humor and types of joke already. Oh, yeah, and the acting was pretty good too, especially from Virginie De Clausade (as Macha) which was the most attaching character. Lots of good feelings and laughter, a perfect pick for a family Christmas movie or for anybody who wants to laugh and have a good time.
