As I said before in other reviews, I like a lot french cinema, and when I saw the trailer of this one, of course I wanted to see it. But, now that I've seen it, I think that it's a good movie, but I don't see it as my favorite french film of the year.
When I entered to see it, I was expecting a really cute, lighthearted movie that probably was going to be a tear-jerker. But turns out that the movie is less family friendly than what I thought, it has very intense moments and the performances were decent, but not the best.
However, it has its funny moments, and heartbreaking ones too. Particularily the ones with the oldest daughter of the protagonist, I think she did a great job, she was possibly the best of the entire cast.
Overall, it's a good job I think. Very entertaining and nice, but still, from all the french movies I've seen, this one is the most imperfect.
