14 June 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I haven't been laughing this loud while watching french television since...well since Nicolas & Bruno's "messages à caractère informatif". I admit their sense of humor does definitely not work for everybody, but you can't ignore, in this show, the actors' sincerity & sheer talent, i've never seen François Berleand in such a good shape, and the man who plays Leguelec (he kinda acts like an evil patrick dewaere...)seems so real you'd give anything to kick him in the teeth, just once...and that's the thing i particularly love about "Le bureau", it's the fact that it can get real real bitter sometimes as the characters it depicts don't seem exactly exaggerated in comparison to real life : light racism, abusive authority, plain stupidity, misogyny...the worst of the 21st century man is here. As for the purpose itself it is highly corrosive and is a direct resonance to the time of economical, psychological, sociological crisis that France is going through these days (errr, years...i mean decades...) The documentary-like direction is quite effective and very helpful to the whole purpose. There is no cheap laugh around here : just sit and watch this.
