Mediocre, unfortunately
20 July 2017 | by Horror-yoSee all my reviews

The first one is surely a candidate for best French film of all-time for its pure thick comedy, the history, the emotions, the soundtrack, iconic actors, and one of the most celebrated directors in the country.

The second wasn't as bad as they say. This however, even with as much effort as it is fair to concede, still comes across as too weak.

The problem first of all is they focused too much on story, not enough on funny. It IS a Visiteurs film after all, not a historical document. They had much to work with as comedians during that rusty old time of post-revolution France, and yet they settled for a group of aristocrats as the main new addition as a source for humor; albeit well written, well acted out by notably Karin Viard who does fantastic as the uptight super hypocritical noblette.

No need to spend an hour here: not funny enough, did not exploit the potential of either the classic old elements or the new environment; story is alright but certainly forgettable and only a framework for a mediocre comedy movie.

Dubosc adds his own little touch, is funny on a couple of line deliveries, but nothing more.

4/10.
