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

Funny sexy and wicked
3 September 2004 | by (Montreux, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The beginning of the movie is quite something. Maurice solves the libido problems of a depressed donkey so that it befriends a mare and agrees to make a mule. A few minutes later Maurice's friend, the wacky hairdresser, borrows the wheelchair of a crippled French legion veteran and forgets to give it back to the muscular tattooed retired soldier. A charitable woman picks the soldier up from the pavement where he was left waiting in the sun in her shopping trolley. The legionnaire borrows a skateboard from a kid and drives it through traffic to get his wheel chair back. He's kicked backwards on a steep slope and ends up flying through the air until he lands in a church. The visual effects are good. I found some serious black humour and enjoyed the satirical portrait of French traditional society reminiscent of some Italian comedies of the 60s although shot in a very modern way. Then the movie takes another turn, showing the attitude of French youth towards sex, race and drugs, through a series of often funny and sometimes sexy scenes. 8/10 for the highly entertaining content.
