Storyline

Brice, a motherless super rich 30-year-old teenager fancies himself a trendy surfer. Only he never stepped out of Nice where the sea remains desperately calm and flat. Brice awaits a giant wave like the one he knows happened in 1979. In the meantime, what he lacks in technique he successfully hides and compensates in style. Yellow T-shirt, yellow hair, yellow parties, he created his own little world where he "axes" people. One morning, his father is sent to jail and "Brice from Nice" is left penniless. He first decides to find out about that thing called "work" (one of his friends does it) at a local restaurant, but then decides robbing a bank is way easier. While escaping after a failed attempt, he meets Marius who needs money for foot surgery. His new best buddy has an idea how to get it: all it takes is for Brice to win the $100,000 prize at the "world underground surf cup". It would "completely" help if Brice had surfed at least once in his life. Written by Greg Philip <greg_philip@hotmail.com>

A young man's metaphysical awakening through the power of the color yellow.
8 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

BRICE DE RICE!!!!11!11!11!1!

WOW DIS MOVIE IS GREAT OR SUTIN

But really, I quite enjoyed the inner psychology of the film. There were many underlying themes of denial, class warfare, and nature. I can completely relate to Brice's wild nature. When I was young, my brother and I split gasoline in the shape on a pentagon on one of my friend's yards. And then we set it on fire. It was something I really feel Brice would do.

I HIGHLY recommend this movie to anyone who can't find their way in life. This movie is for you. Forget the bad reviews. Those were the reviews of people who are either 1: rich or 2: ignorant.

I love Jean Dujardin. It was a mistake for him to do The Artist. His voice needs to be heard. "My pleasure?" Is that really all he can say in a silent film?

BRICE DE RICE FOREVER.
