A totally unexpected Omar Sy
27 January 2017 | by fotopfwSee all my reviews

I though I knew Omar Sy from his other work: "Intouchables", "Nos jours heureux", "Chocolat". But this is something else! Excellent performance! He's so into his character that it feels he isn't even acting, just being. The plot twist towards the end is a real surprise. You go on guessing the story line, but it goes to and fro a few times. Along the way, you're really rooting for more than one person! It's a tale of "deserving" versus " rights", feelings versus facts. Clémence Poésy did her part very well too and so did Antoine Bertrand, madly in love with his work, thinking very fast. The tempo and timing looked good, I did not feel its length of nearly 2 hours. All in all, a good movie, certainly worth watching, for men and women alike.
