I loved every daft minute.
17 February 2018 | by MOscarbradleySee all my reviews

"Struggle for Life" is the kind of broad, farcial comedy the Zucker Brothers might have made except this one's French and the gags are largely satirical. Luckily it's also very funny with the jokes flying faster than they did in "Airplane!", (think of this as Carry On Airplane). The director is Antonin Peretjatko and he gets a first-class comic peformance from Vincent Macaigne as the poor beaurocrat tasked with bringing French snow to the Guyanian jungle. Yes, it's that silly and I loved every daft minute of it.
