good intentions
12 February 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

and that is all because , in many scenes, it seems be a project who must be made but nothing more. the theme is very special and the scriptwriter/director has not courage to decide if it must be a comedy or a drama. so, the decision is the public problem. and entire work seems chaotic. that explains why Jean Dujardin is not the most inspired option for the role of lead character. his efforts to give credibility to story are full of good intentions but not more. because something important is missing. because all seems be an improvisation. and because the subject is out of movie team possibilities. result - French cold style and a lot of good intentions.
