Storyline

Agathe Cléry is a hard working and modern marketing manager from a cosmetics company, specialized in clear skin. Her colleagues find her snob, strict, and they know she's a racist. One day though, Agathe is diagnosed to suffer from Addison syndrome, which alters and darkens your skin color. One morning, she wakes up as black as the ones she intensively hated.

Makes you think, laugh and cry!
1 February 2014 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This is one of those French films (and there are many of them!) that had me sitting there with a smile on my face throughout! The topic is certainly not an easy one: A racist white woman whose skin starts turning darker and darker, in the process having to adapt her views - radically.

So to turn this storyline into a movie that is so funny and entertaining (some great musical numbers!), yet at the same time thought-provoking and heart-warming, that is quite a feat. And the director did a marvellous job at bringing that all together and showing us a part of French society that I don't find thematized in many films, or certainly not in such an entertaining manner.

Absolutely loved it from beginning to end. The only thing I don't understand is why the IMDb rating is only a very low 4.7. I believe this movie deserves a lot better.
