This little gem really surprised me. I thought it will be a heavy drama with a touch of humor. Honestly, I don't remember what was the last time I laughed so hard:) Great movie, and the fact that it's a real story, made it even better! I've never heard of Omar Sy, but I think he'll be the next best thing on the screen in the near future. Let's hope the people in the film industry will see this and realize what real comedy and real talent is!!

It was fantastic, I highly recommend this movie! The acting outstanding. You laughed, you felt empathy you cheered, your emotions were high and it was brillantly executed. It is one of the finest foreign movies I have ever seen. I haven't enjoyed a movie in such a long time it was just wonderful to see heart and soul and so much caring for the characters. Thank you for a most enjoyable and enteraining time at the movies....RB

Somebody was in charge of keeping this feel-good movie from crossing over the line into so-sweet-it-makes-your-fillings-ache. It's a dark situation laced with beams of light and proving what comedians know: we want to laugh at adversity--and the more adverse, the harder we want to laugh. Here, we get to tear up, too. Although it's a movie with no villains, it gets you in a bear hug that won't let go.

I took my 16 year old (American Film Indocrinated teen -exposed only to multimillion dollar crap that can be marketed into video games) and he said, "Mom, I think this is one of the best films I've seen. Why don't they make more films like this?" Money, of course. Leave it to the Europeans to make adult dramas that are much desired and needed. We are left to Focus Films and Magnolia Films and gems like this one to keep us going. Must see. Magnetic and charming.

I didn't know what to expect from this movie. But, when I saw it, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!
I love the soundtrack and the relationship that Drew has with the main character is charismatic. It made me want to stay and find out what happened to the characters at the end. Everything about the movie was fantastic had it not been for the (2) stupid people who turned on their cell phones in the middle of the movie!!
