Storyline

Parisian friends (two brothers and their one-time girl friends) fly to Corsica for a mountain trek guided by the married lover of one of the women. Cora, nearly 30, goes because her psychic says she'll meet a man with a load on his shoulders, which she guesses is a backpack. Nadine goes to be with her lover, Eric, the trek's guide, who is married but promises to leave his wife and daughters soon. Brothers Louis and Mathieu go because Nadine has promised that the beautiful Bernadette will accompany them, plus Louis wants a break from his possessive lover, Jennifer. Bernadette doesn't show; Eric proves a temperamental guide; and, by the end, some relationships change. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't expect the « Bronzes » in Corsica ! (DVD)
28 November 2009 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

This is a comedy but not the same humor than the french classic cited above. It's not vulgar or trashy but rather melancholic and dramatic.

Here, it's about friends who intend to share a good moment trekking in the Corsica country. As they put their personal troubles in their luggage, the vacations turn into a nightmare. First,they must face with the problems of the trekking and in addition, they try to cope with their daily life.

The big strength of this movie is the casting. It is very unusual to have 5 stars together. Moreover, they are very different from each other as well in their appearance than in their personality.

My preferences go to Geraldine Pailhas, a very sweet, soft and gentle woman and Benoit Poelvoorde, who is my best funny actor since Louis De Funès. I like his Belgium accent and his eccentricity, proof of his big heart.

It's like a zen meditation deep inside the splendid views of nature.

Unfortunately, I heard that they have a sequel in saint Tropez and I have a big fear that they got "bronzes"!
