admirable work
5 May 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Louis de Funes. Geraldine Chaplin. and Olivier de Funes. a car. an accident. and a lot of adventures. a film who remains great for the gift to be almost perfect. politic and business system, mass media and marriage, religion and public image, youth and exotic refuge each is discovered by viewer in brutal light. a film about honesty. and a spectacular comedy. Perched on a Tree is one of film who reminds more than present. entertainment of high class, it is, in essence, painful honest reflection about society and its different masks. and , more important, one of Louis de Funes's comedy, with the same smart use of clichés and the great man who becomes detail for the others. and, sure, the wise end, who is memorable. a film who remains inspired option for understand contemporary events in the right light.
