Storyline

A young boy, Maurice, lives and works on a farm in the beautiful south of France. His boss pushes him to the limit. He's underpaid and exploited. He supports his mother, a poor witch who lives in a house in the woods. He's never met his father and left school when he was 16. One day a posh Parisian girl and her racist boyfriend on a short break in a convertible lose their way in the countryside and end up in Maurice's village. Maurice falls instantly in love with the girl. The boyfriend has too much to drink and starts a big fight. He flees with the girl. Maurice decides to go after her in the big city. His naive approach to life, things and people, as well as his almost magical gift, brings him luck, success and fun he could never have hoped for: new friends, sex, pot, career opportunities and totally new sounds are only spoiled by the sudden arrival of his boss at his son's Philippe's flat in Paris, where Maurice stays. Philippe's supposed to attend medical school and keeps asking ... Written by Adam

Hilarious fast paced wicked teenage comedy
6 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

This a very baroque teenage comedy, with more ambition that the genre usually allows. I guess it should appeal to people between 15 and 35 years old, because it includes details than someone who's grown up in the 80's would catch too. The spirit is neo-punk, fast and provocative, extreme, in the picture and in the music too, which mixes a classical score with pop punk and reggae. The camera is all over the place, the set ups and the camera angles are varied which creates a feeling of energy and pace; the scenes end before you get the chance to ever get bored. If you don't particularly like one character, he's gone before you can realise you don't like him. The story is a classical fish out of water story in which two boys from the countryside chase an aggressive Parisian and his girlfriend in Paris to make them pay for the damage they have done in their village when they stopped by accidentally while on holidays. And of course one of the boys seduces the girl. But more than anything they really shake the bourgeois Parisian world with their naive stubbornly happy energy, although everybody works hard to put them down, humiliate and crush them, with the notable exception of several black teenagers who help them out and to whom they owe their survival. Locations are beautiful in the countryside and in Paris. Actors are outstanding, especially the young hairdresser, re-mindful of a young Jim Carrey. A milestone in the history of teenage comedy, not to be missed under any circumstances. Pure entertainment for open minded humour and rock music freaks.
