Miss Twin Towns 2008 (rental)
10 April 2014 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

For the fans of « Twin Peaks », this movie is a must-see as it has the same small town(s) setting and in addition the same public contest ! So we can see the similar facts but also the big differences in cultures and production. In a way, it was also close to « je fais le mort » as it's about a anonymous Parisian who returns to his country to become popular ! Those kinds of movies really speaks to me actually as i felt the same desire to go back to my roots.

So, this is an enjoyable movie, doped by an hilarious Benoit. In addition, he finds a great feminine team of a mother and her teen daughter. If the movie is funny, i expected more from Leconte who is was in the 80s a big name for this genre. I don't understand why he toned down the movie and the creativity of Benoit as the long making-of (50 mn for 89 mn to the movie) clearly shows that everyone laughed very much every day !
