User Reviews

Nice comedy...
12 November 2020 | by Thanos_AlfieSee all my reviews

"With Open Arms - À bras ouverts" is a Comedy movie in which we watch an open-mind intellectual who supports and understands very well the struggles of Roma. Soon he faces a Romani family that starts living in his yard and uses them as a proof and to support his beliefs.

I liked this movie because it had a simple but nice plot and in general I found it very funny. It's a nice comedy movie to spend your time with and of course to laugh. The interpretations of both Christian Clavier who played as Jean-Etienne Fougerole and Ary Abittan who played as Babik were simply amazing and the differences between the two characters in the movie created many funny moments. Some other interpretations that have to be mentioned were Elsa Zylberstein's who played as Daphné Fougerole, Cyril Lecomte's who played as Erwan Berruto and Armen Georgian who played as Ravi. Finally, I have to say that I recommend everyone to watch this movie because I am sure that you will enjoy it and you will laugh a lot.
