Writer-director Lea Fazer turns in a well crafted, highly polished movie that may not trouble the judges on the Festival circuit but definitely delivers in terms of pure Entertainment. She begins with one of the most elemental situations of all; at a family gathering in celebration of a birthday a long-married husband reaches into his pocket for a handkerchief and emerges with a pair of panties which, alas, do not belong to his wife, who is present in the room. In an effort to calm her hysteria the couple's son and his wife offer to put her up for what they assume will be overnight at best, a few days at worst. Bad move. The couple, plus two children, are living in a shoe box so even a night is going to be traumatic and from this commonplace situation Fazer contrives to launch several balls into the air and keep them spinning, not least the fact that the owner of the panties is pregnant with the husband's child. Though everything is there in the writing it still helps if you have decent actors to read the words and are able to convey the required emotions and in Nathalie Baye and Michel Arditti (who have worked together on previous occasions) Fazer has two of the best in the business though neither are the supporting cast, largely unknown outside France, chopped liver. In short a vastly entertaining entry that may or may not hold up five or ten years from now but in terms of now it is excellent.
