Welcome ..........to a nightmare
15 June 2018 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

40 % of the lines are in English. ALL the songs are in English. It's still a French-Belgian movie.

It is par excellence the politically correct movie ,full of finer feelings;a fake rebellion against the powers that be.

One more dud in the feel-good atmosphere of the French scene ,conveying all the clichés :

-the "stay-at-home' dad (very hip) whilst mom does the trendy job :a lawyer ,complete with robe .

-the adorable black child they have adopted in search of his biological father (why not his mother,by the way?).

-the granddaddy ,a spry old man whose doctor (how funny!) does not want to prescribe him viagra anymore ;Delpy's performance is thoroughly unbearable : you will not shed a tear during his farewell ,complete with military honors ;you'll give a heavy sigh :"good riddance!"(at a time when some old people have really a bad time, grandad is welcomed in a luxury (and I mean luxury) home for retired people .)

-the couple whose marriage is on the rocks ,and whose adventure binds them together.

It is would be "moral farce ",most of the time the lines fall flat when they are not downright rude .But anyone who has already worked as a volunteer in a charity organization such as "Les Restaurants Du coeur" will not accept to be fooled in such a far-fetched story ;a grave concern is given a couldn't -care-less treatment and totally misses the point.

Word to the wise :Philippe Lioret made some years ago an adult work about immigration called "welcome " starring the excellent Vincent Lindon ,portraying a swimming teacher who helped a young immigrant to swim across the Channel;it's not as optimistic as "Comment J'Ai Rencontré Mon Père (the ending is depressing) but it's certainly more honest.Do watch it instead.
