Who says the French don't have a sense of humour! Great laughs & a great twist at the end.

Thoroughly entertaining! A loveable rogue and a smart lady. A spoof on the conventional 'hero' film - a nice bit of nonsense!

A mad, but fun, film. Good acting, lovely costumes. We knew the storyline must be mad! (And it was!) Fiction is fiction!

In true French fashion brilliant, amusing - great acting.

Dark humour. Very funny in some places but not likeable characters, can war ever but funny!!

Just what was needed to lighten the angst leading up to the General Election! Did you have fore knowledge of the date? Did you put a bet on 4th July? Smiley face.

Had to take it with a large pinch of salt & ignore the fact that I didn't like the characters but overall I enjoyed it - I laughed a good deal. Very glad I came.

Silly, amusing in parts. Not my sort of thing. Why no trailer for the Gala Film?
