While the intro to our main character might not be as powerful as in the animated "Up", you still get a feeling for a character that will be very difficult to identify with at first. It's a grandmother who is really naughty and seems to hate everyone and everything. But the actress is so good with a script that is really more than fine, that you do care in the end.

You might already know where this is going (sort of), but it's really fun to watch how we get there. The french keep it real (as much as possible), with added story lines, that do not feel that they disrupt or corrupt the main story. It actually adds to it, in small but very funny pieces. I can only recommend this if you like naughty comedies
