Why change the title?
5 September 2014 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

Watched this on DVD last night, and will be buying it. Why change the title to 'fly me to the moon'? - nothing wrong with the original. This is a ridiculous film, a laugh out loud in places film, and has excellent cast and scenery. I liked the way that the story was built up slowly from the wailing guest at Christmas dinner, and evolved gently. The French absolutely know comedy and while it may get a bit wacky at times, and beyond belief (think Lion), it's fun, and total escapism. I don't like this 10 line rule at all - especially when one reads other reviews that are much shorter. Online space isn't infinite you know? In all, an excellent film which has nothing offensive, caters for those with love of the absurd and is entertaining.
