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

Very funny teenage comedy with sweet message
6 February 2005 | by (NY , New York) – See all my reviews

The film overall is funny, witty and well shot. It has some hilarious moments of which I'd pick two: through the intercom the two heroes manage to infuriate a man who thinks it's his girlfriend who's just left him playing a trick on him. He throws all her stuff out the window, from the 6th floor excluding nothing of her belongings including... her cat. The two heroes feel realllly sorry and tiptoe away... The other moment I found particularly funny is when one of the heroes, a rural beauty salon hairdresser, after involuntarily gobbling a handful of E starts tripping and cuts and blows dry a lamp shade in the middle of a posh trendy Parisian party, then starts dancing like he's possessed by some demon. That was really very funny. I enjoyed the sweet moments as well between the boys and the girls, how the characters reveal themselves along the story, the beautiful feelings of friendship and love displayed. I also enjoyed the pro-nature message of the movie. One good and cute little movie you cannot but enjoy if you like to laugh and if you have a big heart.
