Storyline

The gang is back, with Eddie, Dov, and Yvan still in the textile industry and working in Paris' Sentier district. After an umpteenth problem with an independent retailer who can't cover the cost of merchandise, they decide to aim for the guaranteed safety of a large distribution contract with an established chain. Eventually, they do make it big, striking a deal with Eurodiscount, a European hypermarket chain (combination supermarket and department store). However, their joy dissipates as Eddie and Yvan quickly learn who dictates the rules when dealing with a large chain. Meanwhile, Dov, chased out of his home by his wife, Karine, after yet another extramarital affair, leaves with Patrick for California, hoping to strike a business deal there, and Serge, now a struggling delivery man, falls in love with a young girl from a good family whom he fools into believing that he's wealthy by taking over his cousin Patrick's home and belongings during his absence, and by spending the mob's ...

Pleasently surprised
5 October 2001 | by nicholas.rhodesSee all my reviews

I didn't bother going to see this one at the cinéma as I had heard all sorts of comments about the low level finesse of the humour ... however I rented the Dvd recently and found the film quite entertaining. In fact my wife who is Algerian born French and who had seen the number one found the number two better than the number one, now that's unusual isn't it. The film is basically about the Jewish "pieds noirs" ( ex-inhabitants of the Algerian French and their descendants ) ; various comic situations arise when the family of clothiers try to sell models to a clothing discount store, called Euro Discount ( how original ) and who's boss is none other than Daniel Prévost, who played the tax inspector "Cheval" in Le Diner des Cons. Anyway there's a lot of fast-talking and pied-noir humour, as well as some romance, lots of lying ( hence the title ) and beautiful women. It really was a pleasant surprise, and I loved the performance by José Garcia who at one stage has to pass off for an irate ouzbeck buyer to a Tunisian clothers factory. Anyway there's a reasonable plot so the story and I would recommend the DVD. In addition to that, a rare thing on French Dvd's, there are English subtitles for non French-Speakers. A most laudable addition !
