A mix of french and British humor
23 January 2008 | by gretacvegaSee all my reviews

I really want to see this film because of Jean Rochefort, I think he's a fantastic actor, and in this play he can play as a very angry man or as a man really in love. Charlotte Rampling plays in the same way from very angry and violent to very passionate. I think that the fact that the film shows the two faces of the characters makes it very interesting and amusing.

The gags in the film come from the British and the french humor, actually I love both, so a film which has them, couldn't be boring.

The rest of the cast is fine, with a lovely English accent, and from the french part: Isabelle Nanty, who is well-known in France, she usually plays in comedies but characters who have different qualities.

sorry for my English, but I really recommend the film to people who like British and french gags.
