Storyline

There is something strange - some would even say abnormal - about the Malaussène family. But if you take a closer look, no one could be happier than this cheerfully chaotic family, even though their mother is usually off on one romantic adventure or another. Life is never a bore for Benjamin Malaussène, professional scapegoat and the older brother responsible for this horde of kids. But when incidents happen wherever he goes, police and colleagues begin to eye him suspiciously. It soon becomes a matter of life and death to find out what is going on and who is so interested in ruining his life. Written by Pathe International

15 January 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The manner to adapt the novel of Daniel Pennac is far to be easy. it is one of the basic certitudes for the reader.but, surprising, Nicolas Barry does more than a decent job. explanation - the right cast more than the right script. and, not ignoring the admirable effort of Raphael Personnaz and the children, two names are pillars of this film. first - Emir Kusturica. second - Isabelle Huppert. because the film, remembering Charlot sketches, has the chance, for this names, to be for viewer, more than a chaotic/nice/charming comedy but a real interesting portrait of contemporary society.
