I expected a better film...
31 October 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Good plot with great actors, but they seem to act like beginners! This movie is a bad copy of Michel Audiard style dialogs, no where near as funny.

The actors seem board stiff. Did they need cash that bad?!

I haven't seen the original movie with Lino Ventura, but I'm keen on watching it to be able to compare.

The picture is fuzzy and the sound bad (I didn't understand all the dialogs), but perhaps this was due to the cinema, which is a local one (250 seats, one film at a time, but really cheap entry!).

This movie is just not worth it.
