Storyline

To boost the dwindling sales of the magazine where she is an intern, Alice, 23, comes up with a nationwide competition to adopt Victor, 85 and alone in the world. Guillaume, his wife Sylvie and their kids win the contest and the cash that comes with it. They welcome Victor into their home, despite Sylvie's initial reluctance. The children love their new "grandpa", Guillaume's mother-in-law flirts with him and Sylvie is too busy having an affair with the magazine's editor-in-chief to care that Victor is spreading chaos in her household. Meanwhile, Alice uncovers Victor's past and realizes that she may have unwittingly let a wolf into the chicken coop. Written by American Film Market

Pierre Richard as Victor.
7 February 2010 | by (New York, U.S.) – See all my reviews

I was glad to watch this nice movie with Pierre. Although our favorite comic is very old, he doesn't loose his sense of humor and ability to make fun the people. In this movie he does it very well.

"Victor" is unusual drama-comedy, in the some parts of which You're laugh, in the other - You're sad. This is movie about the great people's senses and feelings - about the love, happiness and friendship. I and My family were very pleased to watch it all together. In here Pierre shows to us, how to be a nice and friendly men in the cruel world, how to help to those, who need it, and to be glad about little things.

I say "Bravo" to creators of "Victor", and especially, for Pierre Richard, and applaud to them all for this wonderful and exciting movie. My mark is 10 out of 10! And... Guys, You have to see that!..
