This is a prerelease in Australia, as the official premiere will be in May.
Well, put two of the most handsome French actors together, add some incongruous situations, pepper with great French architecture and interior design and you have this light comedy!
Is it a great film? Probably not, as it misses the mark as a pure "slapstick" one - we would say "tarte a la creme" in French -, but it has some hilarious moments anyway. The youngest of the three kids is just amazing, the music and the piano playing (by Pierre-Yves Plat) a bonus, and the Paris background a treat.
It was a good night, entertaining for sure and romantic a plenty, although in a very conventional way.
I almost forgot to mention another character: the Jewish grandmother, extraordinaire!!! worth the trip....
We finished the night at one of our favourite joint nearby, Tastevin, with a very French dinner of Duck salad for my wife and onglet steak frites, tender and cooked to perfection. Drank some unusual Pinot Noir/Gamay blend: 2009 Coteaux du Giennois Les Tuileries from the edge of the Loire Valley - very interesting!
