A definitive masterpiece - but only viewable by native french speakers
1 November 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is extremely underrated, even in France. The movie could be seen as a very witty and enjoyable essay on cinema as a grammar, with its hidden or unspoken but so tyrannical rules, as any other grammar. It surely will seem awful or to heavily didactic (in a "grammar of films for dummies" way) anyway to any non-native french speaker, unaware of the disarming subtlety of french ingenuous humor, especially the one Baffie practices. Its slogan on the poster as published in France was : "N'y allez pas, c'est une merde!", literally translated : "Don't go see it, it's crap!"... This sufficiently proves how Baffie likes to mock himself, but also the critics (especially the french ones), who do not hesitate to frequently utter not so different flat negative statements about movies, especially when it comes to french comedies...
