This film surprised me so much. I expected to see a socio-economic political commnetary on immigration in Europe, and was pleasantly surprised, instead. This story is one of a friendship as it unfolds, is challenged, breaks even, and resurrects. A true example of synergy, the whole being great than the parts. The friendship greater than any of these two men and their personal challenges. I would have liked more of a statement...you know what I think about statement films ... and I thought this film would have been prime opportunity to make one. But hey, someone else is going to have to make that film. I didn't miss not having a Meet The Press moment, and that's a testament to the story. A great film. Go see it today.

Really strong on message and just made you yell out "YES!" Even reading subtitles did not bother me and the style did not drag it out which happens so frequently anymore. I laughed out loud more than once - great movie. Very funny and heartwarming movie with reality on board.

Looking for a warm, fun and thoroughly entertaining movie? This is it. The only catch, and it's a minor one, is that the dialog is in French with English subtitles. But don't let that stop you. Where this film's concerned, reading subtitles is minor and nearly unimportant. You will laugh out loud and if you're not touched by these performances there's something very wrong with you. You simply can't go wrong here. See this movie. It's worth every cent of today's overly inflated ticket prices. You definitely won't be disappointed.

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.
