| I miss Coluche, I miss the 80s (TV)
In other words, i miss compassionate, engaged artist, light comedies about the usual, common people ! Compared to today world, we are living on a different planet where actual artists are hypocritical impostors and comedies, the playground for upper classes ! Here, Coluche plays a racist, nationalist insurance clerk who is compelled to travel all around the world without telling his girlfriend : so he has rescue missions in Maghreb, NYC, Afrika and Hong Kong. So, what's reveals Zidi as a great director for comedy is the fact that he always find the essential and original backbone to tie all the funny moments ! In addition, it has nothing to do with spoofs and it's mean, the natural state of comedy ! Maybe the movie is uneven with the NYC trip being the more surrealist with its desert and chilly Harlem but Coluche and Mairesse, his old girlfriend, plays with deep talent and real complicity so it's really a good, nostalgic time with it ! (and don't miss James Bond's team behind the « awesome » special effects !)
