A nice evening in
7 September 2003 | by missmarmiteSee all my reviews

This sequel is not as beautiful and lovable as the original but still it will provide you with a nice evening in front of the TV.

It's correct, the steadycam is a bit of a nuisance, but the wonderfully chosen music (violin-lovers, attention please), the great atmosphere of southern France and its crickets, the typically fast French dialogue and the talented actors André Dussollier and James Thiérrée make you forget about the wobbly picture.

Especially James Thiérrée was a surprise. His role was probably the best developed one, and he made the most of it. Watch out for the very last scene, that was a joy to watch. I thought there was something about him, and now I've found out he is the grandson of Sir Charles Chaplin. You definitely see the relation, the ability to enchant others seems to stay in the family.

Don't expect a masterpiece, then you will be happy with this film for the next hours.
