Disappointing
1 April 2013 | by bertrandlfSee all my reviews

Coming from Brittany, and loving most comedy actors in this movie, I had very high expectations, but I was also an easy target, good scenery, a few jokes, a bit of picking on Bretons, and I would have probably been wrapped.

Unfortunately, every minute of the movie felt forced and was actually quite painful. Like in football, gathering some of the best actors in one team is not enough to win matches, let alone the heart of the crowd.

You need alchemy, depth, and for that, room for each actor to express himself.

The more talents you have at the same time, the harder it gets, it was obviously too hard.

Maybe throw a Fest Noz or a drunk on Chouchen (effects of traditional chouchen are different to other alcohols), which would have provided some of the room the actors lacked. Instead of that, the main feeling is pity.

The movie felt like a waste of talent, sad to see so much potential stay below the mediocre line the whole time.

A few endearing moments probably prevented me from leaving the cinema before the end, as well as the never-ending hope that things would pick up, well they never did.

It pains me, but I can't put more than 4...
