A disappointment ...
22 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This movie has a wonderful cast and a good story but it never gets of the ground. Much of the humour is forced and often doesn't work and some gags (like the dog) just don't work at all.

Part of the problem lies with the script which lacks any surprises at all and part with the director, Antoine de Caunes, who never seems to get the best from his actors, and also with the lack of any real chemistry between Charlotte Rampling and Jean Rochefort. The movie feels like one of those churned out to fulfill contractual obligations. It's a great pity because all the ingredients are there for a great comedy.
