Zenshine (Screen)
20 April 2010 | by leplatypusSee all my reviews

As a fan of Leila and finding Geraldine Nakache as the good surprise from "Coursier", it was granted that I would buy my ticket for their meeting.

This movie is depicted as a comedy but for me, it's rather a drama or an acute analysis of commuters' life near Paris, common people whose live doesn't give extras.

Thus, the movie is plain right when it deals with the schizophrenia of the duo: they dream of easy life with money but their roots are fundamental and they have to do the best of what they got in their hands. It's a lesson of wisdom, nearly a zen teaching.

The key moment of the movie for me is when Geraldine stares at her boxes and start to built a life from there. I wish I could find this same spirit because wherever I lived, my small town, Paris, I never felt at home.

I was also moved by her dreamy, introverted mood and the bond she makes with the child of their friend, because I lived this. Her father speaks volume without any words: amazing!

On the other hand, I was under the charm of Leila as usual and it was difficult to see her running against wall.

I also noticed the excellent play of Mrs Ledoyen, which is maybe nourished from her real life.

So, I remember to have felt strange going out of the theater: a bit at peace, a bit sad. This is the same spirit I have now writing this review. For me, it's a sort of french "American X", because in its real life, almost documentary setting, i found a wonderful, unforgettable movie that resonates with my most profound feelings.
