Absolute absolute crap
25 May 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This show is the worst piece of c... I've ever seen. First off, it doesn't look like anything, but in the bad way, in the way that everything is vile, flat, with nothing behind it, from the lousy production design up to the actors. Then, it has absolutely no screenplay, no directing, no editing, the actors are not guided, nothing. It's filmed puke, the "directing" absolutely doesn't exist, the images consist of nothing but zooms in every directions who make you as sick as the rest of it does. Francois Berleand (who, to begin with, is quite far from representing refinement and subtlety) outrageously overacts a part that doesn't even seen to have any guidelines anywhere, stresses upon each and every debility he utters (dialogs can barely be heard, rarely understood, the boom operators seem to do as much of a bad job as everyone else), and eyes the camera after each line of retarded dialogs as if he was saying to a mental audience "laugh now, I just said something!". The dialogs seem completely ad libbed and just give us the feeling to see Berléand "au naturel", at home, behaving like the rightist square that he probably is (with the difference that he's getting paid to do this show, I assume?). If the goal of the people responsible for this piece of dung is to make the vilest portrait ever of some retarded men of our times, they really should rather shoot a documentary about some politicians - this would have a social purpose at least. If their goal is to bore the living hell out of the audience, then sadly it might not boost the TV channel as expected (?), even although the goal is indeed achieved successfully. If the goal is to show that some people exist who have a sad and boring life, they're not breaking any news. Besides, if that's what their goal is, it is totally filthy from them to spit and look down on SMEs. Because one could as easily and as effortlessly do a bad TV show that would make fun of wealthy kids from the rich districts of Paris who film rotten shows for Canal + thinking viewers will care about it. Poor France.
