| What are these secrets?
This is a sketches film introducing the Apfelglück doctor (Thierry Lhermitte) and four of his patients who are living each other a weird or embarrasing adventure. Among these patients, there is Jacques Villeret who's got to spend the night in a disturbing hotel. Philippe Bruneau, actor of a movie in which a cinema crew doesn't succeed in making a sequence. Then it's Alain Chabat's turn in the skin of a quizmaster who can't get rid of a crude candidate (Roland Giraud). At last, it's Thierry Lhermitte's turn!! Indeed, following a fatal malaise, he's going to heaven (where everything's fine...).

Most of sketches movies are unequal and this movie isn't an exception to the rule. If the second and the last sketches are rather correct, the third one is falling into vulgarity and easiness, whereas the story of the first one is told and made in an indigent and unlikely way. Moreover, the movie often introduces some abortive situations and a bit of a mess that hardly maintain the spectator's attention (Lhermitte who tries desperately to get rid of his wife in heaven). Now what to say about the Apfelglück doctor? Well, he's a bad doctor: he has no control over his secretary, he doesn't care about what his patients say to him. But, we learn nothing about his professionals secrets... At the end: it's an untidy and light movie. In the register: sketches film, "Paris vu par..." is clearly superior.
