Simply Brilliant!
27 May 2004 | by imxoSee all my reviews

This superb French farce is brilliant, and I normally don't like farce of any kind. The actors are wonderful, the story line is fantastic, the photography and staging are beautiful, and the atmosphere of the film is extraordinarily engaging. My wife, teen-age daughter, and I went to see the film this evening and all three of us absolutely loved it - a rarity in itself.

But what is perhaps the film's strongest suit is its gentle comedy and insight into human nature. Even when the French are making complete fools of themselves their essential qualities shine through, and this film brings new meaning to the term "coquettish."

I most heartily recommend Bon Voyage.
