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.

This movie was great! It was heart warming, funny, and touching, I think the critics reviews are way way off, they must have watched a different movie? A human story with no special effects or booming audio, it is dubbed but you get lost in the story so you don't notice that! A must see if you like a pure movie and story!

I didn't realize it was in sub titles. I was with my 31 year old daughter and I thought she was going to kill me for dragging her to a foreign film. We laughed through the entire movie and when it was over she thanked me for taking her. We both agreed it was the best movie we've seen in a long time.

This was by far the best movie that I have seen in the past 10 years or so. A feel good, thoughtful movie that hits you in the heart. I laughed, held back tears and sat in awe till the end. It is a French film with English subtitles... but that fact is NOT distracting at all. It is very easy to keep up. The acting was amazing and the characters are very likable. A kind of 'opposites attract' movie with several lessons and beautiful scenery throughout. A MUST SEE for any age over say, 13. Some language and weed use. No biggie.

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!!
