In 2001 I saw one of the most funny, smart & heart-warming short films of my short life : "Confessions dans un bain". Confessions in a bathtub. This short talks about a guy who decides to invite his friends to take a bath and to let them give confessions to the camera. Those confessions will have more consequences then he will anticipate.
10 years later I finally see the first feature film of the director that made "Confessions". My expectations where not high because I red some bad-to-average reviews. And when you saw Confessions you feel indeed that this movie is average to the talent of Marc Gibaja. It wants to be tribute and a fresh approach of the romantic comedy. A tribute especially to When Harry met Sally. But it wants to make fun of it too. That's the main problem. The movie is not funny, at least not funny enough to be a romantic COMEDY. Some jokes feel rehashed. There were more touching and funny moments in his short (of 25 min) than in this 90 minutes. I can remember one real fun moment.There are some funny side-kicks but it feels forced like "let's make it a comedy". Luckily Marie Gillain and Gilles Lellouche are great. If you're a fan of one of those two you should check out this movie. A pity they weren't served with better material ! Better next time!?
