After a heart attack ,Antoine ,who "has never smoked or drunk" ,decides to turn the page and let loose...

Lambert Wilson is so subtle an actor that ,with a better screenplay and a better director ,he could have turned in an outstanding performance ;and in fact ,he does ,considering the limitations he 's working under .

The story is too nice, devoid of a madness which is terribly lacking :the hero should have taken a rebel stand ;it's not because he eats "croissants Au Beurre" for breakfast and develops a taste for booze that he challenges his wife and his tiresome friends .The disastrous ending ,the untimely songs -of course in English,haven't we got our own songs over here? .The kind of music which passes for rock in MTV works-,the lovely cinematography (filmed on location in Provence)make the movie look like an interminable advert.Antoine should have chuckled the whole thing,sent this bunch of bores packing ,especially Baptiste and Olivia .Frank Dubosc and Florence Foresti ham it up all along the way and are almost unbearable.

Lambert Wilson is the only reason why you would watch this ;but he really deserves better.
