It is one of the best comedies ever made
12 January 2013 | by jaguar_girl-992-294225See all my reviews

This movie is great. The producer of the film is Luc Beson, and it is perhaps his talent that makes it a quite a masterpiece. I think if this movie could be properly translated from French into English it could live the whole new second life among English audience. It deserves higher rating on your database. I would say it is not only French humor that makes it worth to see. The focus on human values that are possessed by people hunted by their criminal background and resulting situations where they need to decide about doing good of evil, played in a comedy format, makes it one of the best films produced by French cinematography in the last 5 years. Unfortunately the fact that Luc Beson was a contributor to this film, is not mentioned on your database profile. It would definitely create much mo interest for general audience to see one of the best French movies made lately.
