Veber has done it again
This laugh out loud comedy also has a lot of heart. Fans of The Dinner Game, The Closet, and Veber's other classic comedies can expect more of the same--a fall guy named Pignon, a hilarious case of mistaken identity, some touching moments of friendship, and a lot of shameless farce a la Moliere. But La Doublure offers a few new twists on the familiar Veber formula, including some fine satire of the fashion scene and a powerful commentary on the power of appearance and reputation to shape our desires. Some may say it's "just" entertainment--but like his great predecessors in the tradition of French farce and popular theater, Veber packs a lot of punch. This movie not only pleases, it also proves instructive about friendship, love, and the perils of becoming really rich. It's the director's best film to date and features great performances by Auteuil, Scott Thomas, and the rest of the star-studded cast.
