User ReviewsReview this title
For one time, french show creativity and capture a good idea: what about becoming the only person in a major city? As everyone, sometimes you can feel desperately alone in a megalopolis! With this movie, you can live this experience for real in Paris. It was all the more appealing that this is my hometown for five years now!
In addition, the movie isn't only this strike of genius and owes a lot to Eric & Ramzy. They are cool and funny guys, maybe sometimes a bit too crazy and this movie is theirs.
For the little story, one year ago, i had to go to a shop in my block but it was closed for people and cars due to the filming of the beginning of the movie. I remember talking with the crew to cross it because my delivery was urgent. So the nice hotel with a red opening isn't located near Opera but near the Eiffel Tower in the left bank!
Well, I can say that this movie is a major improvement in every department you can think of. It had good production values, it only drifts into questionable taste briefly, but most importantly, it is pretty funny. It's pretty goofy slapstick kind of humor, but it is accessible for the most part whether or not you are from France. There are a few gags that don't translate well, and the plot does have some confusing touches here and there, almost as if the filmmakers didn't have enough money to shoot some key linking footage. But the upbeat and agreeable attitude combined with the gags that work make the movie work despite its weaknesses. It's a good film to show someone who thinks that all foreign films are artistic bores.
