Trivia

The red and white toilet seat that we can see when Edith sobs is the same that was used at the end of Happiness Is in the Field (1995), another film by Étienne Chatiliez. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the scene where Tanguy rushes out the stairs and asks his mother for a shirt (she actually threw away), we can see Éric Berger's head as he's waiting in the stairs to appear. See more »

Original and fun
17 May 2002 | by jrgironesSee all my reviews

Enjoyable French comedy with funny scenario and inspiring cast. In a way, it reminds me Danny De Vito's "The war of the roses": how a simple idea (there, a case of divorce; here, dad and mom wanting to get rid of his 28 year old son) can be handled with such a black sense of humor, mixing fun and fierce satire at the same time. Unfortunately (and without giving much away), "Tanguy" resents a little from his length and refuses to go further on his almost surreal developed premise taking a kind and conformist turn in the end. Nevertheless, it's much more than entertainment: you'll be amused and will think about its subject after leaving the cinema.
