Reality show

An interesting film that speaks of a modern kind of TV shows, the garbage TV channel shows that spread like fire since a decade now.

I won't be long to describe this interesting film, for which the audiences may think about, even long after the viewing. The human silliness is shown here at its paroxysm, at a scale you can't even imagine. But that's the reality, folks, the cruel reality. Unfortunately some sequences spoil the true message of this feature. Some scenes are unbelievable and so far reduce the strength of the message.

Kad Merad was the perfect actor for such a character.

Such a film - which is very good, I insist - makes me puke. Puke because of the true nature of the human kind. A very pessimistic film, in resume. But that's my own point of view.
