handbook : how to do with the usher
jean-no from Paris
21 February 2002
I don't know how it works in other countries, but the french usher seem to
have all the rights : they break your door and steal you anything,
for very little problems (eg a wrong car parking infringment): if you are
not there when they come or if you don't know a lot about it, these people
can make you a lot of problems.
That is the plot of a book called "legal racket" : this book became the
movie we are talking about. Here there is a little storyline, some jokes,
and a lot of legal tricks. The acting is quite good, Daniel Prevost, who
plays the usher, is maybe the best actor in France to play that kind of
characters : anyone would like to kick him ;-)
So : good acting, interesting subject, but a quite bad movie, because a
subject is not enough to make a story. At the end, all the neighbours of
hero come with a little money to help him, like in Capra's "it's a
life"... not a lot of ideas as you see.
Not a good movie, not qualityless, can be seen.
