Storyline

An aging mobster is being transported from prison to the courthouse in Nice where he may name names. Milan, a hit man, checks into a hotel with a view of the courthouse; he sets up with a high-powered rifle to wait. François, a self-pitying photographer whose wife has left him, checks into the room next to Milan, intent on suicide. His bumbling, his constant chatter, and his calls to his ex and her husband threaten to keep Milan from success. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Only the french
14 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

Let me start, by saying, that I didn't know this was a remake and I haven't seen the Original movie. The idea it plays with is funny enough to be remade I guess. And only the french seem to be able to walk this fine line, between being annoying and successful with this concept, which this movie proves, too.

Talking about annoying, one of the two main characters, is very annoying, but without him, you wouldn't have a movie. And although some things seem completely OTT, it still maintains a nice rhythm, which is owed to the script and of course the actors. If you are willing to let yourself go with the flow of the movie, you will very much enjoy it. Actually I'm surprised that there is no plan to make a Hollywood Remake yet. On second thought though, it is pretty difficult to adapt for a mainstream audience!
