La Personne aux Deux Personnes (The Person Who Is Two Persons) (Me Two) Reviews
Retro, absurde et servi par un Daniel Auteuil surprenant
Et j'ai adore, du debut Ă la fin.
A grand renfort de kitsch, le film recree l'atmosphere particuliere des "messages a caractere informatif".
La meilleure comĂ©die franĂ§aise des annĂ©es 2000 (avec les OSS 117)
Jean-Christian Ranu (Daniel Auteuil) is hit by a car driven by a has-been popstar from the 1980â??s Gilles Gabriel (Alain Chabat). Somehow Gillesâ?? spirit also enters Jean-Christianâ??s head, so he has to deal with having two persons in his head. Conflicts emerge because the mundane life of an accountant doesnâ??t fit well with hedonistic Gilles. While Jean-Christian is all stressed out because of a major presentation that he needs to do, Gilles is more interested in making a comeback using Jean-Christianâ??s body. Of course such situations provide a lot of laughters for this movie. Like, how will Gilles deal with Jean-Christian going to the loo? Or his early bedtime at 8.30pm? Will Jean-Christian also help Gilles check on his wife?
The movie has a lot of funny moments, but they don't make the movie extraordinary. Auteuil is really a chameleon as he can inhabit whatever character that is thrown at him. Some of the scenes are too OTT (over the top) for my liking and made me cringe - I wonâ??t spoil the surprise by revealing which ones, in case youâ??re going to see it. If you feel like being entertained by some light french humour, Me Two may be a good option for you. If you want a smart, witty comedy, this wonâ??t please you as much.
