This is a very enjoyable movie although I consider it a bit inferior to Labrune's previous one, "Ca ira mieux demain". There's been obviously much effort spent on writing the dialogues, the humor is mainly based on language, words being taken literally, in a sort of "absurd logic". Sandrine Kiberlain is great, as usual. And don't miss Thierry Mugler's creations for Dominique Blanc !
