| French, french, my dear compatriots from metropol, far-sea, past colonies ... outer-space and so on..(Screen)
Another first review, so the responsibility is heavy on my shoulders...

and this movie is not easy to review: what is it? a documentary? a satyr? fiction or reality?

Archive footages taken from almost forty years with real talks from people and an imaginative voice off of the first Frenchman, the actual President, Mr Chirac!

The director Zero is famous in France for this no-choice: he did this for almost 10 years in his Sunday TV show, and this movie could be a sort of compilation of those years...

This can be entertaining for the first time viewer but sadly for the average french, there isn't surprise...

Furthermore, i find this ambivalence a bit wicked:

if you love democracy, you don't joke about it but you tell everyone your opinion.... And if you want to joke, you don't hurt yourself by telling the same joke for 10 years...

So the head of the state is incompetent ? Here's you see the man who got all powers in France: - keeping the same model of car for 30 years! (What a man opens to modernity!)

  • saying one thing & do the opposite

  • marrying a woman who don't like her people

In conclusion, he's above all a chameleon thirsty for power....

I find Michael Moore more respectable (He don't like Bush and he has no pity) or Charlie Chaplin, a more honorable artist (when he jokes about the greatest evil of XX century in an unique movie that says it all....)
