An awkward robber named Vincent Papineau seizes a cheap painting during a burgling of routine in Montreal. Reselling for a bread bite, he learns that it concealed 50 000$ dissimulated in it's frame and that it belonged in fact to a certain Carlo, boss of the Marseillaise Maffia. In fact, the name of Carlo is the diminutive of... Carlotta Luciani, expert in vendettas. Carlotta launches out the search of her painting, in company of Marius, her henchman. The chance smile to Vincent, disguised as a priest to escape his prosecutors, he is noticed by two police officers who mistake him for Claude Laurin, a colleague of the "brigade" that everyone believed on vacation. Conscious that it will be uncovered at the return of the true cop Claude Laurin of which he usurped the identity, Vincent profits from it to elaborate an incredible plan with his friend Dieudonné.Written by
A high concept idea that's been done before, but nevertheless it works. I was dragged to see it by my girlfriend (she loves Roy Dupuis) and I was not expecting much, however, I had a blast! I don't like Roy Dupuis, but he really surprised me with his comedic sensibility. The scenario was tight and the dialog was funny and clever. We laughed from the beginning to the end of the movie and so did the rest of the people in the theater. There were a few predictable gags, but such is the case with many comedies. Luck Mervil, who's a Quebec singer, did a fabulous job as Roy's sidekick. If you want to have a good time and have a few laughs, this film delivers. As a matter of fact, it was much better than "Meet The Fockers" or "Fat Albert" or for that matter, "Christmas with the Kranks." If I worked in an American film studio, I'd do a remake of this movie in a second. French Quebecers love it; it's rated number 4 out of the top ten on cinemamontreal.-- it beat out the above American films, including "Aviator" in terms of its public appeal! The script comes across as deceptively simple, but it's actually extremely well crafted. Lots of fun to watch; I recommend it if you want to chill.
