As good as the original!
31 August 2011 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

As another person already remarked this is a remake of another french movie that I have viewed and liked it very much. Both are as good because send a strong message against prejudice and the aim in my opinion is well achieved. I think both deserve to be seen because apart from the hilarious script which made me laugh from beginning to end, it's at moments touching and in others so true that one wouldn't doubt a second this could have even been a real story.

I have seen it in Italian and although I know it's translated also in other languages (i.e. German) I can't imagine whether the movie translated makes laugh as the Italian version.
