The brothers Zef and Roni are very different. In Paris, Zef's wife is buried about the same time as Roni's daughter is getting married. Zef's daughter unknowingly falls in love with Roni's daughter's fiance. Problems arise.
This is a very sweet, innocent semi-comedy. Throughout the first half of the film, the characters are fairly one dimensional. Even Dorothée and Nicolas seem flat and almost cartoon like while all the other characters simply have cameo type appearances. However, when Dorothée and Nicolas each arrive in Paris, they begin to flesh out. Hubert, played beautifully by Guillaume Gallienne brings the film alive with his portrayal of a deaf-mute tailor. Only the French could come up with such a brilliant solution to the romantic dilemma of our two love-struck soul mates. This is not profound, French cinema but certainly not a waste of time. I smiled in the end and giggled here and there throughout the movie. Enjoy
