Not the best with Pierre Richard. Not a role that fits him.
23 November 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

Pierre Richard is known to play clumsy, kinda dumb characters all the time. A character were everything goes wrong for him so that's the general image we have from him. In Le Jumeau (or The Twin) it's not the case and to be honest I can't see him in any other character than mentioned above. Normally I like fast paced stories so it's even a surprise to me that I found this movie just too fast paced this time. It's all going very fast what makes it a bit annoying to follow, plus the story is just not very credible. Him playing a gigolo whilst let's be honest he's not a very attractive man is just a bit far fetched. Certainly not the best movie I watched with him so quite disappointing.
