This french comedy is a good surprise because it tells how a writer picks up ideas for novels. It's funny to remember that the famous KING who always writes novels about a writer never really takes a technical look in the process while this movie plunges right into the field : so we have a really great study of fiction, reality, creation. It's also a decent comedy as the author runs after a girl with a hat who runs after his girlfriend ! This triangle causes funny moments all the more than the cast is really inspired : la Bellucci is less statuesque than usual and is indeed great speaking french with her cute accent ; The actress from « Schindler's list » is witty and dynamic and the author Jacques Gamblin is really good : a bit like Duchovny, he is a false quiet able to adapt in every situation. For me, as the action takes place in Paris, it speaks to me because i know a lot of places, malls, squares… It's surely an hidden gem to discover as the real authors behind it never really done something else better before or after this one !
