User Reviews

 
Midlife crisis can be so funny

"Embrassez" has traces of Woody Allen and some others from the old same soft comedy, it will sure satisfy those who are looking for a movie that make them smile. That's the purpose of Michael Blanc and I think he achieved his objective.

Rich and mature people that do not know what to do with their lives, sick of everything and of everyone. Jelaousy, infidelity, intrigue and a thousand misunderstandings. If you got all those ingredients, then nothing can possibly go wrong. If also you got actors such as Dutronc, Rampling or Bouquet... well, mission accomplished!!

*My rate: 7/10
