A funny film for all
4 October 2014 | by Luigi Di PillaSee all my reviews

VILAINE is another funny film made in France. I have seen this film for the first time on a French cable TV. My wife was so excited after the end that she decided to buy quick the DVD.

The script is simply and there are many funny scenes where I laughed a lot with my family. Marilou Berry was great in this role but the other actors delivered a good job too.

This is a must see. I don't agree with the underrated votes on this site. It merits at least a solid 8 out 10.

If you liked it I recommend you RIEN A DECLARER, BIENVENU CHEZ LES CHTI's, LA PREMIERE ETOILE or L'ENQUETE CORSE.
