Bravo Adrien and Co!
10 January 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

What a delicious moment I spent watching this beautiful and simple movie. What a surprise to see how good a former classmate (in the Eva Saint Paul class, Paris) is now on the screen, a nice chap indeed, whom I hope to see again very soon. But the main point that I also really appreciate was that some heavy problems that concerns the youth are dealt really smoothly, lightly (in a positive sense), and it is quite refreshing, especially for a french movie. It does mean that anyone can have a good insight on those problems (justice, racism, finding a job, parents and children relationship...), with a clear and positive mind, and it is important. The script is, thus, pretty good, as well as the acting of this bunch of so nice people that you feel like having a drink with. And, talking about that, as a good drink, this movie can be refreshing as well as warming.
