Superb settings and a wonderful story starring Alberto Sordi
21 July 2001 | by vinnienhSee all my reviews

Here it becomes clear that Alberto Sordi is certainly a great comedien: he is without doubt the most funny character in the entire movie. His moviestar-dreams and his "c'est si bon" are unforgettable. There is even a great scene in which he dances with a gay director! The other crew make it a wonderful romantic comedy too, on the beautiful Cote d'Azur.
