Due to the commercial and especially critical failure of the film, Michael Youn published on his official site a very aggressive letter to the critics who slammed the movie. That text was quickly removed, but remained long enough to be be published on French message boards. See more »
Just think for a second all the bad things we do that harm our body..., the junk food , the cigarettes, the lack of exercise... . They say when something hurts, when something does not work properly, is actually every single cell manifesting, almost screaming for help. Like the old doctor's proverb: "Sickness is the shout of the body". But, what if the body can really speak for itself? Our mind in one side and all the figure in the other. Both confronted in a struggle that never ends, and if it does, the only possible result is dead. Enemies that without noticing are killing each other, as they need to work as a team to survive. But don't imagine that, just go and see this movie. A great French production, meritorious of a comparison with Hollywood Jim Carrey movies, like "The Mask", "Liar Liar" and "Irene, me and myself". Those kind of comedies that make you laugh gag after gag. Michael Youn carries all the film in his shoulders and takes it to unlimited places in a hilarious adventure. Our main man: a script writer surrounded only by the failures of his works, also projected in all the aspects of his life. Decided to meet success he will realize that it's not an easy job, specially when everyone is not helping, including his own body, that decided after a strange accident, to start a rebellion. The characters are taken to the extreme of ridiculousness. The colorful variety doesn't stop surprising us. A jealous father, a very particular police officer, a lovely grandmother, and the never missing, but also, impossible love. It deserves to be seen. "Men sana in corpore sano" or I should say "corpore sano and men sana"? Ask your body to take you to the cinema, relax your mind, and enjoy it.
