A genuine and often funny depiction of the relationships between monitors and children in a summer vacation camp. From romance to friendship, dancing to fighting, this French movie bring back good souvenirs of childhood.

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.
