A merry movie about a merry period of many people's life.
5 July 2006 | by FifidouSee all my reviews

This is not a pretentious movie, but it appeals to the memories we have from childhood, so we all have this kind of sympathy for the subject. Vacation camps. I don't know whether this concept is popular in the US, but in France, every child has attended to one of those. And everybody can find out some stuff in this movie closely related to what was the vacation camp when he was young. And this is what makes this movie work, it appeals to one's nostalgia. This is not a great movie though, the story is not different from the real story that happened for many people. It could have been a documentary on vacation camps, anyone would have seen the difference. The actors are quite good, and the dialogs are often funny, when they are not really funny. I do have a particular tenderness for the one where the director of the vacation camp, Vincent, spends several minutes explaining to the parents on the station platform that they must sever the link with their children, and 20 seconds later doesn't manage to have his father hang off the phone. Everything is like that, and as a movie made to make us laugh, it comply well with this definition. So make your choice if for you this movie is who the price of the ticket, but the audience when I saw it exited with a big smile on their face...
