A great moment (attention, I explain the beginning of the movie)
17 December 2003 | by webenSee all my reviews

After "Rencontre avec le Dragon", a dramatic vision of middle age (that wasn't a good movie), Daniel Auteuil come back to his original style of playing, the comedy. And it's fantastic. Auteuil is really a great actor and José Garcia confirms he can play a more complicated role. The movie is double sided, between pure comedy and drama. It's the story of a man who wants to suicide, another one saves him and decides that from this day, he will do all he can to make him happy. But it's not always easy to sacrifice oneself to save somebody. Specially if the other is a breaking heart becoming a little bit crazy...
