Blend of absurd and romance - nice comedy
20 March 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Pierre François Martin-Laval (Pef) is a member of the famous theater/TV company Les Robins des Bois, known for great TV highlights ("L'instant Norvégien des Robins des Bois") and artistic bombing with their first picture "Rrrrrrr". Pef's comedy is a blend of sheer absurdity and childish references and that makes him a very particular character during the whole movie. He plays Yves-Marie a french cosmonaut (sic) who returns see his childhood love Jacqueline 24 years after she promised him that she'd marry him after he'd have travel in space.

Jacqueline, the girl turned woman Julie Depardieu is obviously speechless, while she's supposed to get married with Vincent (Kad Merad) in a few days. Yves-Marie suggests Jacqueline that if we try pants and cars before we buy them, she can "try" him for 24 hours.

The plot is original and funny and the movie offers funny appearances like Pierre Richard's, godfather of Pef's sense of humor based on clumsiness. Unfortunately, even if the movie is based on this nice plot, the gets lost in it after its two first thirds, hardly driving towards its expected happy ending. The movie's still worth to be seen, as I think that Pef may become one of the most original comedy writers in France.
