The perfect films for a cold Monday night.

Had my doubts about a farce. My doubts well ill-founded

Oh La La! A rip roaring, light hearted, saucy farce, that only the French cinema could pull off. Lots of laughs with a happy ending or will it be, as the hero rides off into the distance? Short film best yet and matched well with the main film.

Short was to close to the knuckle for the rating. But the main was hilarious. A great romp.

Great fun - Jean Dujardin excellent. (Still some issues with audio in the short film?)

Kept interest and interesting plot but cold guess the outcome! Good last scene - going "home" another way.
4
Short - funny but with a 12 rating for the main, inappropriate as there were children there. Main - fun romp. Nice change to harder story lines.

Fun & diverting. Total contrast to last film about Stasi!

Farcical, funny, but slightly annoying!

Sound appeared out of synch for the short.

Short - very funny. A good to see comedy - not as cringy as some we saw last season.

Very amusing. Not convincing.
