Storyline

Romain, a real estate agent, is threatened with seizure by the bailiffs. The situation worsened when her grandmother's house came under threat of foreclosure by order of the bank "La Reynière", and through the intermediary of Master Grimbert. After a failed first attempt (seizure of La Reynière's property instead of Romain's grandmother), Master Grimbert set his sights on Romain and his neighborhood. He has only one solution: to become elusive and defend his neighborhood against the bailiffs. Only one method: learn the New Code of Civil Procedure and the Civil Code. And 3 rules to apply: Rule # 1: don't let them in Rule # 2: don't let them intimidate you Rule # 3: be persuasive.

handbook : how to do with the usher
21 February 2002 | by jean-noSee all my reviews

I don't know how it works in other countries, but the french usher seem to have all the rights : they break your door and steal you anything, sometimes for very little problems (eg a wrong car parking infringment): if you are not there when they come or if you don't know a lot about it, these people can make you a lot of problems. That is the plot of a book called "legal racket" : this book became the movie we are talking about. Here there is a little storyline, some jokes, and a lot of legal tricks. The acting is quite good, Daniel Prevost, who plays the usher, is maybe the best actor in France to play that kind of ugly characters : anyone would like to kick him ;-) So : good acting, interesting subject, but a quite bad movie, because a good subject is not enough to make a story. At the end, all the neighbours of the hero come with a little money to help him, like in Capra's "it's a wonderful life"... not a lot of ideas as you see. Not a good movie, not qualityless, can be seen.
