I sat through this entire film during the French Film Festival at the Director's Guild. Writer + Director Bertrand Blier was present during a Q&A after the movie and that's about the nicest I have to say about the experience. There might be snobs and movie critics who say this is art in its finest form, like brown nosing Jon Amiel who did the interview. Let me be the first to say it is NOT!! Symbolism is one thing, surrealism another and there's nothing wrong with either one. But using some silly actor to represent a person's cancer?? Wow, REALLY?? Besides a few giggles and the few people who left the theatre in pure anger, I sat there in the dark in disbelief.

Bertrand Blier is definitely always filming unconventional movies and this one is using love, sickness and somehow solitude as central topics with a good trio of actors (I want to put Anne Alvaro at the same level than Dujardin and Dupontel) putting the scene in a dramatic set up.
and that is all because , in many scenes, it seems be a project who must be made but nothing more. the theme is very special and the scriptwriter/director has not courage to decide if it must be a comedy or a drama. so, the decision is the public problem. and entire work seems chaotic. that explains why Jean Dujardin is not the most inspired option for the role of lead character. his efforts to give credibility to story are full of good intentions but not more. because something important is missing. because all seems be an improvisation. and because the subject is out of movie team possibilities. result - French cold style and a lot of good intentions.
