Murphy's law
18 December 2012 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

According to the principle in the title of this French movie, everything that could go wrong, will go wrong, an idea that runs loosely in the film. Elias, a man who had served time in prison, is working as an orderly in a Parisian hospital. When we meet him, he is five hours away from his probation period outside his jail. Should he mess up, he will end back where he came from, but Elias is intent in not going back.

A heist at the Meridien hotel, brings a gang of criminals to a room where a diamond merchant is assaulted and robbed of his precious treasure. The gang, making its getaway, run into problems, when another bandit, Rudy, forces the criminals to give up the loot. An accident occurs that lands Rudy at the emergency room at the hospital where Elias, who happens to have been his cell mate. Things go haywire from then on, as the criminals concentrate in locating the stones.

Directed by Christophe Campos, this comedy was shown recently on cable. The director co-wrote the screenplay with Mabrouk El Mechri. Unfortunately, the whole thing is a pastiche of gags that go nowhere. Laughter, so essential in movies such as this one is sorely lacking because M. Campos heavy handedness approach. Pio Marmai, a decent actor, has nothing to play in the film. Omar Sy, of "The Untouchables" fame, shows nothing as the big gorilla, a member of the gang.
