Laugh out loud funny ... if you're Jewish
6 February 2019 | by donnaracheledmundsSee all my reviews

This film is a must watch if you're Jewish and growing increasingly fed up with the growing levels of antisemitism across the west. I can only imagine its relatively poor score on this site is down to the fact that most reviewers don't fall into that category.

Because this film is funny - hilarious in fact. I was crying with laughter in places. But it may only be funny if you're Jewish and recognise the stereotypes, both in the sketches and in the main character, a Jewish man seeking therapy for being obsessed with the Jews and anti-semitism.

Excerpts from his therapy sessions are interspersed with what are essentially short stories, each one revolving around a Jewish stereotype and featuring a cast of characters who don't reappear. There's the Jew who wonders why he isn't rich when all the others are; the Nazi who belatedly discovers that he is a Jew; two Jews arguing over increasingly outlandish hypotheticals relating to chimney sweeps. The oddest short story involves a Mossad agent who travels back in time to kill Jesus, proving once again that in French cinema, literally anything can happen.

At times it's quite poignant and thought provoking, the director has been clever enough not to go just for laughs all the time, the result being that when they do come, they act as much as comic relief as mere entertainment. Which is precisely what we Jews need in this day and age, isn't it? A bit of comic relief.
