Reality TV Gets *Really* Unreal!
26 November 2008 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

This is at least the fourth take on "Reality TV" (following "The Truman Show", "EdTV" and the original, "Louis 19 Roi des Ondes"). As in Truman, the subject is unaware of being on camera. The angle here (shown from the start) is that a marketing/opinion research/advertising organization --not a broadcaster-- is the culprit. But the extent of the firm's involvement and "research" techniques are wildly unrealistic, which clashes with an intended romantic comedy.

In other words, "Truman" was clearly science fiction, "EdTV" was an uncommon but credible real-life situation, but apparently "Comme tout le monde" tries to be both, which IMHO doesn't work.

Khalid Maadour and Caroline Dhavernas excel as the main protagonists, as does Thierry Lhermite in his highly far-fetched incidental role as the country's President showing up unannounced --along with his First Lady and cohort of aides and bodyguards-- to conduct one-man focus groups personally!

The production values are fairly slick, but the excessive and intrusive computer graphics often make the end result feel more like a videoclip than a feature film.
