Babysitting
10 July 2014 | by (Roma) – See all my reviews

The plot is almost simple: Franck works in a society of publication of comics, the "Edition Schaudel". The event happens during the day of his thirtieth birthday, when his head gives him the task to take care of his son, Rémi, in return of an amount of money and the promise to see Franck's drawings. The evening, two friends of him organize a surprise and have a feast into the house of M. Schaudel. The already complicated situation degenerates completely with the lost of Rémi. After a lot of bizarre happenings, the story comes to an end. M. Schaudel resolves the problems with the son, Franck fall in love with his dream, Sonia, and publishes a comic strip story of what happened.

The movie in sum is appreciable. It's remarkable the choice of the alternate use of regular shots and the technique of "mockumentary". This is used when M. and Mme. Schaudel watch with two members of the police the footage of the night before. This situation is also one of the strong points of the film, because of it's simple comic sense, managed at perfection. the rhythm is insistent, not boring. The start of the film is spectacular as realization, but going on with the story, this atmosphere vanishes. The two great lacks are the insufficient characterization of the characters and the fact that in many points is taken for granted. In conclusion the movie is suitable for an hour and an half of comic entertainment, but not too spectacular.
