One of the best French movies I watched this summer.
Had to do it in chunks, though: the emotions were so overwhelming I had to stop my player every 15 minutes or so just to catch my breath.
I dunno, probably it's because of my age (about 50, male) that I relate so closely to that story.
Certain scenes and dialogs seem a bit exaggerated but that's French comedy for you. Snobish movie critics can boil their head but I don't regret for a minute that I spent well over two hours watching it; will recommend it to all my buddies.
On a side note: After seeing the movie, it would be probably a good idea to read the interview with Vincent Cassel (Paris Match #3449, Jun 25 - Jul 01, 2015, pp.9-11) where he talks about his character in that film.
