French movies often have horrible storytelling. This one is no exception. Although the acting was above average for a French movie, I couldn't care for any of the characters.
Poor character development and storytelling have been plaguing French cinema for decades. Tellement Proches suffers from both.
This movie is supposed to be a comedy but there's nothing funny. I smiled once. Most characters and situations are full of clichés. After watching this movie I cannot help but think that Nakache and Toledano got a crazy fluke with Intouchables and that will be the only good movie they ever make.
