Unremakeable
14 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

An excellent French comedy (of kinds) and one of the rare examples where we can be pretty certain that it will never be remade by Hollywood.

Why? It is too surreal, too illogical, it steps on the toes of too many institutions (the police, the arts world, the church - to name just three), it is politically incorrect, it has too much sex, it has a sad ending, etc. And if one tried to touch any of these "too"s one would seriously damage the film.
