Factual errors: At the beginning of the movie, the narrator compares the alignment of Gruyère cheese holes and airplane accidents, but Gruyère has no holes (not large ones, anyway). Emmental is the well-known holey cheese.See more »

Middle age crises in an original way, 10 September 2005
Author: rolaven from France

This was a funny movie, compared to most of french comedies. It had an original script, a good rhythm, a narrator, a relatively good actor's direction,and despite its lightness, it was quite moving in the end. As usual with most of French films, the ending is not that elaborated. But in general I think it is worth seeing it for laughing a little bit and think about your own ghosts. The flight simulator was a good add-in, and gave the film a very original feature. Marion Cotillard's was good as well, although she was not very present in the film. It'd preferable to develop a bit more their relationship... Ludo's role is fantastic as well.
