A generous comical offering from France, which however...
7 June 2017 | by tzevmarinouSee all my reviews

...does not manage to leave a lasting impression after all. Nevertheless, it is not a bad idea going into the film without expecting much.

That way, you get a ''small'' film that is funny all the way, during its 1 hour and half duration. In 90+ minutes, director and actors give their best and they do so very passionately, and effortlessly.

However, if you do not like watching foreign movies and/or reading subtitles you will probably find this film ''noisy'' and tiring. Since all the fun stems from continuous dialogue exchanges between the characters.

Still, the script is effortless with the actors delivering their lines greatly. The characters they portray are lively and sympathetic. Not so realistic, they are however identifiable with due to the grace of the actors and clever direction.

What's missing however from the film is some required action and suspense. You never really worry about the characters' ''future'' in the film; but you do enjoy their presence there, and their mostly trivial ''family'' conflicts.

To sum it all up, this is an enjoyable experience at the theater which stops when end credits begin to roll. Personally, I happen to wish to watch films the stay with you for a while after ''the end'' and that is way I gave it a low score.

My father, with whom I watched the film found my rating a bit harsh and, to be honest, I agree with him! I was harsh. He wasn't; so the film's quality depends heavily on the viewer's point of view, and taste. And their personal expectations.

In very few words, I think this is a so-and-so french comedy that will simply satisfy you, or leave you you wanting something more, as it did with me.
