Nice the city is the star
1 June 2018 | by jonathan_lippmanSee all my reviews

Yes the city of Nice where the director actress was born is the star of this movie. It was fun for me because I saw a handful of people I know who do extra work like I do in French films and TV shot in the region here of Nice and beyond. I Was supposed to be an extra but the day before I was to work I was cut out due to budget cuts I believe so I was very disappointed. IN the end the scene I was supposed to be in was very short anyhow. IN the end the movie is frankly not very funny. Good cast, especially French 60s star Francoise Fabien but the laughs are few and the story is banal. I was hoping to enjoy it but the only thing I did enjoy was all the wonderful Nice locations and seeing people I know. Helas it was not a success and lasted maybe a week in the cinema here in Nice.
