Trivia

In French, the expression used instead of "French leave" is "Filer à l'anglaise" = "English leave". One possible origin of this expression is a retaliation toward British people for the expression " to take a French leave" See more »

Goofs

No explanation is ever given for why Mme. Reynard, Julius and Madeline (who must have homes of their own) all decide to move into an apartment that clearly isn't large enough for all of them to live comfortably. See more »

User Reviews

Flawed but watchable
10 December 2020 | by random-70778See all my reviews

It was difficult to put my finger on it, but although I enjoyed a number of the scenes in this film, as an overall story it failed.

The cleverness of the script is at first attractive, but then becomes forced and artificial.
