Eric Lartigau takes French comedy to a new level
28 January 2009 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Comedy films in France are different from comedy films made elsewhere in the world.This is because the French look at humor is different from the way it is approached in other parts of the world.In the past Buster Keaton and Max Linder were great comic artists but there was a marked difference in their comic styles.French comedy is a kind of comedy mixed with a fair doses of intellectualism,seriousness whereas American/British comedy is a pure comedy entirely dependent on funny, comic situations.One has to watch most of the Woody Allen films to see that effect.French humor involves auto derision which is similar to Italian humor but it bears no resemblance to other types of humor practiced in the world.Un ticket pour l'espace is a hilarious french comedy film directed by Eric Lartigau.Although space travel happens to be one of the major themes of the film,writers of this film Kad Merad and Olivier Baroux use all of their available imagination to the maximum possible level to give us a funny concoction of silly life of a failed actor,stupid males falling over a beautiful woman and a criminal brother taking revenge.The result is a laugh riot where we learn why space travel is becoming more and more popular.This is a perfect film which might give some ingenuous ideas to Sir Richard Branson to commercialize space travel.
