Michel Blanc, the intruder.
17 May 2003 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

When he started walking in the cinema, Patrice Leconte decided first to specialize in comedy. This one, will probably remain the best that he ever made. I found it superior to its predecessor: "les bronzés" (1978) with its crude and often vulgar humor.

So, after he broached the behavior of the tourists when they're on holiday in the quoted movie, Leconte chose to broach a rather dramatic social problem on a tone comedy: the squatters. Either they gather in flats or tiny houses and they can become delinquents, either they ask hospitality to their close relatives or their friends. Here, the movie deals with the second case. Michel Blanc is fired from his job and becomes jobless and homeless. Bernard Giraudeau gives him hospitality and of course, Blanc agrees. As it was to be expected, Blanc's arrival changes completely Giraudeau's way of life and due to him, he's fired from his job too. Moreover, his wife's leaving him...

Michel Blanc' performance is worth the detour. An important part of the movie rests on his shoulders ans he's simply irresistible. He's also the cause of vexing situations for the characters. Besides, the set constitutes a plain comedy but funny enough to burst into laughter. Perhaps, the only fault of the movie is the following one: not going deeper into several situations. I especially think about the moment when Giraudeau is on the streets with Blanc. This moment is rather a bit of a mess and Giraudeau quickly succeeds in becoming reconciled with his wife. Apart from that, a pleasant comedy.
