Being Daniel Auteuil aka "Dans La Peau De Daniel Auteuil"
1 March 2019 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

The English title ("me two" ) is much better than the clumsy original one (the person with two persons);it's a funny offbeat little comedy,which loses steam in its last third ,but which features witty lines(with a liking for scatology ) and a good performance by the always reliable Daniel Auteuil.

A eighties has-been(Chabat) wants to make his come back and as he is rehearsing his brand new songs in his car ,he is killed in an accident ; but his spirit survives and "after seeing the bright light they say we see when we're dead ",takes refuges in an accountant's body (Auteuil) .Auteuil 's career is not brilliant ,he's bullied by his colleagues and his authoritarian boss, a young woman (Foïs) who threatens to send him away in a branch of their firm in Bucarest ,Romania .

As for him , the singer's spirit ,who gets used to his new dwelling ,namely the accountant's body ,does not renege on his come back ,in spite of the real owner's jibes ("I thought you were dead/I make an album every six years/ 0,16 album a year ,that's not much")

Two thirds of the movie are thoroughly enjoyable,but the last part becomes too predictable after a while and some scenes (the bloody nightmare, the love affair,the reappearance of the husband in the flesh ) are heavy-handed ;both of them should challenge the powerful firm!and challenge, they do ,but politely,cowardly,when we were expecting more madness.

Daniel Auteuil's fans will have a good time though;so will the others .
