I saw it at the Colcoa film festival here in L.A. It was a delight, so fresh, so full of life and such a fluid camera/directing. It won the COLCOA 2006 prize and after a week of great movies this one was my favorite. It reminds me somehow the freshness of movies by Cedric Klapish, another great director. There were no major actors in the film, which probably was for budget reasons. But it is refreshing to watch a movie without a celebrity wearing the pants of regular people. It was a great experience to hear the audience enjoying it an laughing so much. How often do I laugh watching a movie that often? Everyone left the DGA theater so happy after the movie! Maybe I am biased, but I hope that movie will be at some point released in the US. I just want people to have a great time like I did.
