Endearing and funny, but something is missing
I really liked the lightness and deepness of this story about a weird french family. The characters, especially Simon (astounding Jean-Pierre Marielle) are all endearing. It's a very rich subject, a very personal and yet entertaining movie. The birth scene in the end is funny and moving. The problem of that movie is that not much of it remains after the end. I feel sympathy for it but not as much as for another Noemy Lvosky movie witch I loved, that's called "La vie ne me fait pas peur". Maybe youth was more attractive for me than old age and maturity, may be Noemie wanted to make a popular movie, and that's a tricky thing to attempt, because when you want to enlarge your audience, you sometimes lose something. But all in all, a good film.
