| Don't you think the joker laughs at you!
...and however the first scene promised great things:the first line is "Ciel mon Mari" (= good heavens ,my hubby!) a line we often find in the FRench "Theatre de Boulevard" .A lover (Cassel) is escaping from his lover's bedroom on the roofs of Paris,near la Tour Eiffel,when the husband his cursing him! But what follows is downright boring.Cassel's family and their lifestyles are a real turnoff:uncle Theodose(sic),sister Pilou and brother Guillaume are really the pain in the neck.Not to mention his natural sons.Cassel is cast as "the joker" (check the title)but he is a heavy one .Anouk Aimée is totally wasted as his -at last- true love !"you must have had thirty women before me" is supposed to be a funny line.

The joke is on the viewer.
