A delightful comedy
3 February 2020 | by ashot-3See all my reviews

When was the last time you saw a lady taking panties off on the screen and then putting another pair on that was not obnoxiously vulgar but - on the contrary - was the right thing to do, causing the viewers to smile approvingly? Not many, for sure. This is the movie that did it - delicately and elegantly.

It is that sort of a movie where even the most serious issues are handled with humor and great acting which the French are quite good at. The plot has holes in it, obviously - mostly in the scenes, related to the Basque police and weapons parts - but nothing outrageously goofy. The difference between the Parisians and Basques is well played off, trying to articulate fun biases, stereotypes and prejudices, without siding with anyone. It worked well practically everywhere.

It is a romantic comedy, which contrasts the family, business, friendship and other relationships in both places. The result is a very nice watchable movie with quite a few very funny and memorable scenes.

It is well worth watching, maybe even a few times. I, honestly, cannot understand the low rating this movie has on IMDB. Which part of it the viewers did not get?

Hope this helps, thank you for reading.
