| sadly overlooked minor gem
I really loved this film which was charming and intriguing. It was a shame it did not achieve wider distribution, and that that terrible Tom Hanks vehicle took the same (English) title. It provided a wonderful insight into the way that people could lose their freedom to determine their own lives, as well as sending up the vagaries of French bureaucracy. Jean Rochefort is a wonderful actor; I would be happy to see him in almost anything but this was an especial joy. It even gave me a perverse yearning to stay in one of those automated French hotels that are guyed at some point. It is several years since I saw this film but a number of vignettes remain clearly in my mind.
