Can ten million euros change life for an ordinary man ?
28 November 2002 | by faniougeSee all my reviews

It is the dream of so many people, being an ordinary person, and suddenly becoming rich in only one day. What would you do with 10 unexpected million euros/dollars ?

The hero, Aldo has a little problem : he's just divorcing and doesn't want any cent of this fortune to end in the pocket of his future-ex wife, so he has to wait until the divorce is pronounced. A so big secret is very hard to keep. How can he change his life while apparently continuing the previous one ? What about his friends ? That's all the subject of this film, with an good scenario, an excellent Jean-Pierre Darroussin, very funny situations and dialogs. A film which make you rich for almost two hours.
