Absolutely Dreadful!!
15 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I sat through this entire film during the French Film Festival at the Director's Guild. Writer + Director Bertrand Blier was present during a Q&A after the movie and that's about the nicest I have to say about the experience. There might be snobs and movie critics who say this is art in its finest form, like brown nosing Jon Amiel who did the interview. Let me be the first to say it is NOT!! Symbolism is one thing, surrealism another and there's nothing wrong with either one. But using some silly actor to represent a person's cancer?? Wow, REALLY?? Besides a few giggles and the few people who left the theatre in pure anger, I sat there in the dark in disbelief.
