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.
