Storyline

Vincent Roméro is an osteopath who makes a point of being funny every minute he is awake. In fact it is his way to remain the center of attention. His antics wind up irritating his wife Camille, a geriatric doctor, to such an extent that she leaves him one day. At first Vincent is so persuaded his many qualities are hard to beat that he can't doubt she will soon come back. But as she doesn't, he starts questioning himself. All the more as he realizes, to his dismay, that each time he clowns the people around him start dying of laughter...literally that is! Written by Guy Bellinger

When the Russian waiter speaks to Vincent in Russian, what he says is subtitled as "Do you have Slavic origins?", while it really means "Do you have Orthodoxal origins", which is clearly not what it was intended to be. See more »

If you like José Garcia, you'll love this movie !
17 February 2003 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Finally a movie where Jose Garcia has all the place he wants to breath and really express himself ! (All right, maybe it's because his wife directs the movie, that's a minimum !)And the scenes with Benoit Poelvoorde are masterpieces ! This is not only a very funny movie (sometimes it's very subtle, it's even better) it has a real purpose : to make you realize how lucky you are before loosing everything completely, some moving moments, but there's always a trace of humor after so you never stop laughing while the message goes through.

I had a really good time with this movie, I hope you will too !
