Anti-Semitism, sexism and silliness are on the program, Dujardin delivers the cult phrases (” A dictatorship is when people are already communists. How cold they are, with gray hats and zippered shoes. That’s what a dictatorship is, Dolores. “) and the rhythm never falters until the final, hilarious duel. We never tire.

Of course, we have seen it 40 times but we will always salute this monument of humor which sits The stupid dinner Where The three brothers in this decade of the 90s which was so successful for French comedies. The inventiveness of the scenario, the mechanics of the dialogues, the staging of Jean-Marie Poiré (who was not yet massacred with a chainsaw, as in episode 2) and of course the perfect duo Jean Reno-Christian Clavier still makes us laugh. From there to prefer this program to the presidential evening that it will shorten on TF1, it is understandable but not very civic…

A couple of Parisians live in an apartment with their daughter, suffering from “goldfish disease” and permanently sheltered by a glass bubble. One day, a mysterious mist covers the capital and threatens to intoxicate the population. It is first of all a strange film which distributes its little clues in dribs and drabs to better shed light on the outcome. We look with a curious eye…then we doubt and finally we get bored.
