an expected nice comedy becoming a cult movie
7 September 2004 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The first time I watched this movie, I thought it was a good surprise as I'd never heard about it before: a funny comedy, with good actors and a creative director. But something in that film attracted me to watch it again (what I rarely do) and I really felt in love with it. Sergi Lopez, Francois Cluzet and Marie Trintigant are amazing: in an absurd situation, with extreme characters (especially Cluzet), they are more than credible. Sergi Lopez performance is unique: a subtle equilibrium between burlesque and tragedy.

The text is extremely well written and precise. Technically, the movie is very creative (I'm waiting for the next Benchetrit work).

Each time I see this movie, I love it more. rating: 10/10 as it is a cult movie to me
