User Reviews

the trilogy is complete
15 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is last installment of the modern low budget trilogy with Augustine. However, he is not the centre piece as the director Anne Fontaine explained in the TIFF Q&A session. Instead the film pays tribute to Danielle Darrieux, who I am not familiar with but as you can see in the long list of credits here towards her name.

I first saw Augustine in 1995 in TIFF and I still remember the hilarious interview scene. Then came the Augustin, King of Kung-Fu in 1999. It is amazing that Anne Fontaine can keep the same flavor in all 3 films, and obviously the same spontaneity in Jean-Chretien Sibertin-Blanc's improvisation. (Also remember in '95 our Prime Minister was also named Jean-Chretien).

This movie revolves around Augustine, using his unique resourcefulness in putting on a play/show based on a very old script - a period piece. In fact, Anne Fontaine mentioned in the Q&A that the original intend was the old script but she did not feel it was right and switch gear into a comedy. Good choice!! Instead now we have a play within a movie, that also plays-off the script about 2 female counterparts that quarrels over a younger man. Maybe the movie also speaks about how age affect role selection/choice in this business.
