A refreshing little comedy.
10 December 2001 | by john_wittenbergSee all my reviews

I saw "Vive la republique" the other day, and I think it was quite amusing. I even laughed a couple of times during the film. Nowadays you don´t see good comedy-films too often. I really hope French movies will get more attention in the future.
