Quirky French comedy about family bonds and self respect. Slowburning, gentle and occasionally incredibly funny.
The French are quite good at these subtle melancholic comedies, which are mostly funny because of the bizarre conflicts people get themselves into. This picture is about a nice and very kind man, who gets suckered into giving shelter to a mentally disturbed collegue who had accidentally attacked him with an axe at work. Yes, you read it correctly. Sounds bizarre, yet despite the (accidental) axe attack this kind and gentle father of two kids, decides to take the mentally disturbed collegue into his house anyway. Then (hilarious) troubling events start occuring when this mental patient starts taking over the household. The household disasters are building up in ever more hilarious severity.
The core of this story has a true to life ring to it, basically portraying (with witty detail) a divorced father, who is trying to raise his two teenage kids as good as he can. Things get really complicated though when the mentally disturbed collegue is overstaying his welcome in his house. Just a lovely quirky French melancholic comedy, best suited for an arthouse audience or for those who love this typical French kind of understated humor.
A French comedy with very little laughter
It’s a comedy that settles for smiles, mostly wry ones. A story of a would be loser (once again – I don’t believe there’s such a thing, but people do use the term). Kind sensitive and unable to say no for real. Everybody around him knows it, and they all take advantage of it. Pushing his life into a surreal spin, in which reality itself loses touch with reality.
It takes some very good acting, a carefully balanced plot – it could easily slip into an all out farce, and that, obviously, wasn’t the intention of Dominik Moll – the director and of Gilles Marchand who helped him with the script. The line between sanity and common sense is also being blurred, in the best way. I think this kind of dual balance is best kept in French comedies. There are similar stories being made elsewhere – they end up over the fine lines that this film succeeds not to cross. It does makes you think, what’s a loser, is it so bad being one. Who’s insane who isn’t and who lives in a bigger cage.
