Trivia

Theo urges Daniel to enter a drawing contest for kids though he's overage, since he looks much younger with his "gueule d'ange d'argent" ("silver angel face"). Daniel is performed by young actor Ange Dargent so the joke about his face is true on more than one level. See more »

User Reviews

Smart kid film from Gondry.
24 November 2015 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

In their original context new French movies seem to be better than the ones that show up in the Australian multiplexes. It will be interesting to see if this one, LOVE or LE TOUT NOUVEAU TESTAMENT make it here.

M&G is an agreeable departure. The disaffected school boy chums build a car out of junk scrap metal and are disappointed that they can't register it but they still hit the road, disguising it as a timber shack - great moment of the vehicle we thought was a write-off rolling to the rescue in a cloud of smoke.

The switch to a serious ending helps the piece stay in the memory.

Audrey Tatou has a minor part to further disorient the viewers.
