User Reviews

Passable Benoît Poelvoorde vehicle
2 November 2015 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

Rich, leisured & bored Benoît sees Efira's rant about family on the TV, after she's busted for shop lifting, and decides he needs a family - hers.

Comic and occasionally involving complication as he moves in with the bottom feeders, with his chauffeur a 'phone call away.

The outcome is instantly predictable and the development routine. Poelvoorde is one of the most original comic actors working today but this must rank among his slighter offerings. Compare Le TOUT NOUVEAU TESTAMENT or Le BOULET.

OK production values.
