Le grand partage (2015)
User ReviewsReview this title
This one had a fun trailer...and boy does the movie disappoint. Not a chuckle to be had. The premise is ridiculous and treated as well as one could. It's a set up for comedy all right but... nothing!happens!with!it. It just becomes more and more ridiculous for the sake of it... with no payout.
The cast varies in quality. Bourdon & Viard are great actors to start with and deliver as well they could. Balasko is probably the only thing worth a smile in the movie with her over the top attitude. The rest is forgettable at best.
Overall, the movie is enjoyable, but it makes the viewer quite uncomfortable as it poses questions to our own feelings of solidarity.A valiant effort of a social commentary disguised as a comedy. I would have given it a better grade if the ending worked a little better for some of the characters - it felt too rushed for some and too easy for others. I do recommend it though.
