Brought a smile to my face
9 October 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Laurent Tirard is a capable comedy director who can give us gags and a little sorrow along the way. The story is a little thin--can we really care that much about the travails of a ghostwriter and his brainless, egotistical subject?--but the manner of telling it is engaging, and the performances are all good. I have been a fan of Edouard Baer since Betty Fisher et autres histoires, in which he played a really resourceful crook, a man who was able to sell his mistress's house without telling her he was doing it, and pocket the proceeds. Baer doesn't have a great range (all the way from A to B, passing by C) but his dishevelled charm carries him all the way through the picture. He reminds me a little of a French Gig Young, high praise.

Marie-Josee Croze is so versatile. Hired killer in Munich, unhappy mistress in Je l'aimais, patient nurse of Amalric in Le Scaphandre..., she is one of the really impressive new actresses of the last ten years. Alice Taglioni contributes her considerable comedic talents to the fun.
