Loaded with sex appeal, groovy digs and that deliciously dry French wit, Alain Jessua’s second feature is a fabulous time that makes fun of life in every sense of the phrase. Pierre, a handsome comic-strip writer, and his artistic wife are invited to vacation in Neuchâtel, Switzerland by their biggest fan, an impossibly eccentric man-child who spends the better part of his days piloting remote control planes, ogling strippers and spending gobs of inheritance money. However, Pierre and his seductive wife are quick to capitalize on their host’s outlandish nature, turning him into a suave, pop-art, comic book criminal — a fantasy Bob is all too willing to embrace in reality. As fun and creative as they come, the film will make you exit the theater a little hipper and with a few French wise cracks that’ll keep you on the cusp of cool…for a little while at least!
