An unusually cold winter forces the french government to push the best housed people to accommodate some poor fellow citizens. The decree called "Le Grand Partage" creates some trouble among the residents of a Paris upscale apartment block.
This was the theme in 2015 french comedies: they're simply not funny.
This one had a fun trailer...and boy does the movie disappoint. Not a chuckle to be had. The premise is ridiculous and treated as well as one could. It's a set up for comedy all right but... nothing!happens!with!it. It just becomes more and more ridiculous for the sake of it... with no payout.
The cast varies in quality. Bourdon & Viard are great actors to start with and deliver as well they could. Balasko is probably the only thing worth a smile in the movie with her over the top attitude. The rest is forgettable at best.
