Far from farcical French farce
5 November 2009 | by (China) – See all my reviews

This is French farce at it's best, funniest and most endearing. To appreciate it, one does need to have a sense of the ridiculous, and it helps if you are open to the notion that we live in a ridiculous world. It is a story of a crazy man in a crazy world: and plenty of crazy things happen in the movie. It's not just farce and slapstick, however – although that comes in plentiful supply. Rather, the story is really about society's perceptions of sanity and madness. It invites us to question the values that we have in modern society: it's somewhat anarchic in a way only the French can be, but overall it is houmourous – providing one had a sense of humour, that is. On a technical note, the direction and cinematography are innovative and intriguing, which all adds to the enjoyment of the film.
