Audience Member Bon film, très intéressant en voyant un bref aperçu du "débrouillement" des sdf et autres personnes mal rejetés de la triste société. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member French comedies must necessarily view in original version! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Un des meilleurs films de Gérard Jugnot. A la fois tendre et drôle, il nous montre que chacun peut se retrouver dans la rue du jour au lendemain et ça fait réfléchir... Les répliques font mouche et les acteurs donnent véritablement corps à leur personnage. A voir!!! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Less fun than I expected; specially coming from the great comedies' master, Gérard Jugnot. Excellent actor and director, even here, but the rest of the cast, and more, the script, didn't follow this time. We can't be to the top each time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Une epoque qui n'est toujours pas revolue, malheureusement, et un des rares films de Jugnot qui ne soit pas vieux jeu. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
