A "Claude Pinoteau" film:La Boum 2 is better than La Boum.
17 November 2013 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Although "La Boum" 2 is more than 30 years old, it is heartening to learn that it has not lost an iota of its emotional appeal. It is known by cinema goers as far as in faraway Japan where Sophie Marceau went to promote her film. La Boum 2 talks about the world of youngsters and their parents especially from a "generation gap" angle. It shows that their world has not changed due to the control some parents continue to exert on their children. We get to see that the attitude of parents has remained same as they like to continue to spy on their kids fearing that their kids would no longer be in their control. It is as if somebody is afraid of losing them.Leading French actors Claude Brasseur and Brigitte Fossey play their roles with great finesse as parents of a young lady named Vic who is loved by everybody around her. Although "La Boum" is considered a cult classic, it is also a "perfect" family film as any member of the family can easily watch it.Lastly,La Boum 2 is a film for all those who like their comedies to transform their worlds into a "stress free" world.
