You can learn from the quiet ones
Greetings again from the darkness. I live a charmed life. Very few things are more frustrating to me than a movie that has one or more good ideas and manages to do absolutely nothing with it/them. Director Anne Fontame has a good track record, but here a few bucks tossed towards a screen writer would have worked wonders.
The trio of prestigious lawyer Bertrand Beauvois (Fabrie Luchini), serious security guard Christophe (Roschdy Zem) and wild child weather girl Audrey (Louise Bourgoin) set the stage for some fascinating interwoven story lines. Instead we get a few good one-liners and a confused mixture of funny and dark.
I am not trying to bash the film as it is enjoyable enough, but it is certainly a poster child for wasted potential.
