Storyline

Pierre has four months left to live if he does not find a new liver. His only hope is a transplant from his brother, Paul. But Pierre hates Paul and has refused to see him for the past ten years. They are different in every aspect : their way of life, their tastes. Nevertheless, Marie, Pierre's fiancee, is determined to reconcile the two men. A love-hate relationship develops, disrupting the trio, recomposing the couples and even going so far as to change their personalities. After a few too many drinks and a bit of fooling around, the settling of scores between the two brothers will come to a surprising end. Written by Anonymous

Pas si bien
25 June 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

A man needs a new liver or he will die within four months!Only a transplant from his brother can save him.Unfortunately,the two men have been at odds for ten years.

Such a subject demands : -either a black humor treatment and then it takes genius to succeed in making such a movie.

-or an intimate rendition,displaying the subtleties of the heart and the sensitiveness.

"Quelqu'un de bien" is a horrible film.Patrick Timsit is ,along with the other Patrick (Braoudé) the worst actor of the contemporary French cinema .Jose Garcia ,who gave a good performance in "Extension du Domaine De la Lutte" ,is as unbearable as him.Both overplay,and as far as their relationship is concerned ,you can see what they are up to from a mile off.The female parts are vulgar and only decorative.

Disgusting,obnoxious,awful...
