With a Ph.D. in Philosophy in hand, Montréaler Pierre-Paul Daoust, from a working class background, is an intellectual who believes that being one only gets in the way of happiness, whether that be emotionally and/or financially. That's why he feels he's stuck in a dead end courier delivery job, and that's why he feels he couldn't make a go of a relationship with his last girlfriend, Linda Demers, or any woman in not knowing how to relate to them in a humanistic manner as opposed to intellectual manner. But that's also why he volunteers for a charity for the homeless. When making his usual deliveries, he stumbles onto a robbery gone wrong. Sensing an opportunity with one of the robbers and the security guard shot dead and the other robber having escaped to tend to his serious injuries before getting caught, Pierre-Paul, on impulse, decides to grab and abscond with the two large sports bags filled with what ends up being millions in cash before the police or anyone else arrives on the scene. The business robbed was acting as a front for money laundering by the Irish-Jewish West End Gang by Vladimir François, the head of his own gang. Not knowing what to do with the cash having only that mentality of an intellectual with some human needs, Pierre-Paul ends up making associations with two people who themselves fall on what would be the illegal side of the law. One is Sylvain Bigras - nicknamed the Brain - just released from prison as a money launderer for a biker gang. And two is a woman who goes by the professional name Aspasie, one of the most expensive and high end prostitutes in Montréal, she who he initially contacted in needing his sexual needs fulfilled by spending some of that cash, and who he only chose from her online profile with her professional name associated to the world of philosophy. Especially in falling for Aspasie, who leads a life of professionalism in her business, Pierre-Paul has no choice within his nature but to believe in human trust in dealing with his new new associates. But as the three of them try to figure out how best to deal with the money, they have to contend with the police - Detectives Pete La Bauve and Carla McDuff leading the investigation - who suspect what Pierre-Paul has done with La Bauve in particular needing to show his own superiority in the matter in feeling let down in his own position in life, and the West End Gang and Vladimir, who will do whatever it takes to get their money back as can be witnessed by what they do to young Jacmel Rosabert, the robber who was able to get away and who was only hired to do the job in the first place.

My final verdict on this film, after I watched it over two and a half hours, is that I thought the film was more like a TV movie than anything else. There are plenty of laughs and one-liners, but this movie is more like a movie, and you have to be watching it for the jokes. As a serious film, it's okay, but I don't think I'll ever watch it again. It's definitely better than "City of God" but it's nowhere near "Animal Kingdom." My favorite thing about the film is the cinematography. It's an amazing piece of work. As for the performances, I really liked the lead role, but I didn't really care for the supporting characters. The only thing that stood out to me in the characters were Stelvio Cipriani, who I thought was a perfect villain, and Brigitte Fossey, who I thought was very good. Overall, this movie is just a fun film to watch. If you are looking for a serious film, or are watching it to be entertained, this isn't it. It's just a movie, and that's all it is. I think I'll probably enjoy it more the second time I watch it, but it's not really worth the time investment.

I had seen a couple of reviews of this film and decided to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of people didn't like the film, but I thought it was very funny, very clever, and the French accents were perfect. The film is loosely based on the novel by Guy de Maupassant, which I think is a really good book. I thought it was a great choice to make the film in French with English subtitles, and the English actors did a fantastic job in the accents and dialects. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys film-making and wants to be entertained. 7/10

When you first see this film, you will think it is completely bizarre, and in a way, you are right, because this is a weird film. It is so strange because it has no plot, it is just one movie. Yet the main character, Abril, is so likable that it makes you feel really sorry for him. So when you are not completely sure what to do in this movie, it is nice to have Abril's character as a good friend. So, I really recommend this film to anyone who likes a weird film, because there is nothing like it. I give this film 7 out of 10.

I found this film to be very funny and very interesting, it was a real treat. I do not believe it to be a movie for the hard of heart. It is a movie that has it all, action, romance, comedy and drama, and it keeps you glued to the screen. The plot is one of the best ever seen on the big screen, which is what makes it so great. The cast was excellent and the direction was perfect. I have been a fan of Besson for years and I can say I was not disappointed with his direction. I was very surprised that this movie has a very high rating from IMDb. I was very impressed by the reviews here and I don't think I will be disappointed in the future. There are very few movies that are this good. It is worth a watch. I highly recommend it. It is a must see. It is a great movie. I give it a 7 out of 10. It is worth the watch.

I had a lot of expectations, after seeing so many movies with the same theme: the white man trying to rule the world, with the same historical background, which leads to political and social conflict and change. And so I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It's a really good movie. It's not a revolutionary film, but I thought it was very interesting and interesting, the politics and the overall situation was very interesting, and the actors are great. The movie is very original, and it's not a movie that you can tell a lot about the "white man" from the beginning. It is really a documentary that you have to watch, because you can see how the situation developed in a historical context. I really like this movie, and it's a really good film. And it's a really good movie for everyone. I'm really looking forward to see more films like this one.

I just wanted to say that the movie is really good. I never saw the French version and I think this is the best one. It's a really good movie.

I actually didn't know what to expect from this movie, as I don't think I've ever watched a French movie before, nor do I have a love for French films. However, I ended up really liking it, because the movie was so well written, the plot was full of twists and turns, and the actors were superb. I thought the movie was an amazing mix of comedy, drama, and action, and the scenes where everyone is running for their lives or engaging in an intense conversation really made me feel for all the characters. I really hope that this movie gets made available to the public, because it was so well written and well executed. It was a great film!

A beautiful movie, and a very good one too. I'm not a big fan of the French, so I'm not sure why I liked this movie so much. The story is very simple, and very entertaining. The actors are great, and the film is very well made. The director did a very good job, too. The actors were very good. I think that the movie is very realistic, and it's very well made. I don't know why I'm giving this movie 8/10. Maybe because it's not a very well known movie, or maybe because I'm not a big fan of the French. I think that this movie is very good, and I recommend it to everyone. I'm very impressed with this movie, and I hope that it will be more popular in the future.

In a way, I'm a little disappointed with this movie. I expected a lot more. I expected a movie that would make you laugh and think about the way things are in our world today. I expected a movie that would make you think about what is important in life. Instead, I got a movie that made me feel uncomfortable, which is not what I wanted. This movie was not funny, and I don't think it's meant to be. It's meant to be a satire, and it's meant to make you think about what you see on the news. But, if you want to laugh, then this is not the movie for you. I don't think I'll be seeing it again. I think it's a great movie, but it's not the movie I was expecting.

At first, I didn't know what to expect from this film. I was going into it with the same expectation as I would have had if I had been forced to see the original version. I wasn't that impressed. I'm not sure I could say that I'm a huge fan of the original version, though I thought that the dialogue was a little better in this one. There were a lot of funny moments and a few good laughs, but it wasn't something that I was really blown away by. What I got out of the movie was a good feel for what the original film was like, but it was definitely not as good as I thought it would be. It seemed to me that the director didn't know exactly what he wanted the film to be. The film seemed like it was going to be funny, but I wasn't blown away by it. Maybe I was expecting too much, but it wasn't anything amazing. In all, I was happy with the film, but it was nowhere near as good as I expected. Maybe I should have just watched the original version instead of this, but I still recommend the original.

Dijonian is a fascinating character. He is arrogant, egocentric, selfish and violent, and is never interested in learning more than the rules of the game. His mother is constantly going back to Paris for "health", which he also does not seem to care about. In fact, his mother is the main focus of this film, a constant reminder of his father's influence. Dijonian is a poor shopkeeper. He does not work for the store, he does not take any salary and he lives on a handout from the shop. One day he runs into a client who wants him to help him make some money. Dijonian is charmed by the client and they decide to start a shop together. Unfortunately for Dijonian, the man is not as charming as his father. Dijonian's father is a violent, incompetent man, who is intent on taking the family's money. This is also a problem for the family, as they have no money and can not afford to have Dijonian help him. In the end, Dijonian is forced to leave his father in order to help his mother. He moves to Paris and starts a shop. Dijonian is unable to find work, but at least he has learned a few things about life. He ends up running the shop for a while, but soon he learns the law. He wants to learn about the law, but the law is not very interested in him. He eventually becomes involved in the law. This is a really good film, although there are some problems. I have never seen a film that shows the lack of respect that the law has for a person who is of lesser intelligence, and is not worth the trouble of trying to find him. The film is well done, but there are some problems. It would have been nice to have more scenes with Dijonian, since it is clear that he is very intelligent and has the ability to learn from his mistakes. One would think that someone who has such a low IQ would have a hard time learning and making mistakes, but I believe that Dijonian does learn from his mistakes and gains respect for the law. I also think that Dijonian could have learned to appreciate the people around him more. He is actually very likable and nice, but I think that he could have learned a lot more from his father. I would not recommend this film to anyone who is not familiar with French cinema.

The movie is very entertaining and it is not a very serious movie. It is a comedy with a very serious theme. It is not a movie for the whole family. If you like this kind of movies, you will like this movie. It is a movie that you can watch with your family. I think this is a very good movie for all the family.

I was surprised to see that the film was made in France. The director is Antoine "Pat" Loiseau. I have not seen any of his other films, but from what I have read on the web, he is a very good French film maker. I am not a big fan of French films, but I like to see them and this one I liked. It's one of the funniest films I have ever seen. The characters are very well developed and the actors do an excellent job. The plot is predictable, but it's enjoyable and well-done. You really do not have to know French to enjoy this film. It's a very charming and funny film. Recommended.

I was a bit skeptical of this film. I have to admit, I didn't like "The Empire Strikes Back" very much. But I'm glad I gave this one a chance. I loved the characters, the plot, the dialogue, the music, the editing. I was amazed at how good this movie was. It was also funny. I loved the characters, and the plot was great. I think it is a must-see for any fan of French cinema. I give it an 8 out of 10. I think it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

A film with a lot of potential but is unfortunately never fully realised. A man who is trying to live a quiet life is drawn into the world of drug dealers and gangsters, and his journey is a difficult one. The film is a good one but there are many problems with it. The main problem is the fact that the film is too slow. There are many scenes that drag on for too long. Also, there are too many scenes where the characters are speaking in French and the film is in English. This is a problem because it takes away from the film. The film could have been better if it had been in French. Also, the film is too long. There are many scenes that drag on for too long and it becomes boring. The film is a good one, but it could have been better.

This film is an homage to the great French cinema of the 1940's. The cast is made up of the great actors of the era, and the story is a classic love triangle. The film is very entertaining, and I think that the actors and actresses do a great job. The script is very well written, and the direction is very good. The film has a very good sense of humor. The movie is a must see for any fan of the French cinema.

I thought the movie was pretty funny. I don't know why people say it's trash. I think it's a real movie. A lot of people are saying that they don't understand the story. It's true. It's a bit too long. But the movie is great. I really liked it. A lot of people say that it's a bad movie, but I say it's a great movie. It's not the best movie in the world, but it's one of the best movies of the year. It's really good. 7/10

I have watched this film a few times and I still enjoy it. The film has a good pace, it keeps you interested and it keeps you guessing. The film is based on a book by the same name, which is based on the book "La Chute de l'empire américain" by Louis de Gueorguie. The film is about a Frenchman who travels to Paris to find out why his father is dying and why his mother is leaving him. The film is very funny and has a good pace. It is a good film to watch if you are bored. The film is worth watching. 8/10

If you think this movie is too gory, and/or vulgar, you are going to be a little disappointed. I thought it was pretty accurate. I think this is one of the best french films I've ever seen. I loved it, it was really funny, and all the actors did a great job. The story was pretty good too. It was realistic, not a lot of action, but the story was good. I think this is the best french film I've seen. It's a great comedy, and it's a great movie. It's one of my favorite movies. Go see it.

The French Connection is a well made comedy. And although it is very violent, it is a comedy of violence. The movie has a good storyline, especially considering that it is a remake of a movie that was popular in the seventies. I particularly like the music that is used, with some great songs. The actors in the movie are very good, with Paul Sorvino and Sean Penn especially. In general, this is a good movie that is worth seeing.

It's an historical comedy of errors and I can't really find anything wrong with it. It's the perfect way to spend an evening, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. As a historical comedy it is pretty good, but as a comedy it is not that funny. There's lots of historical errors. For example, this movie is based on the Greek emperor Trajan. Well, the Greek emperor Trajan was not an emperor but a Caesar, and he was not a great general, he was a general who had some good ideas but in the end he was nothing more than a petty ruler. The Roman general Marcus Aurelius was a great general, he was a military genius and he was very strong and aggressive. The Greek general Marcus Aurelius was a mediocre general, and he was not a great general. So if you want to watch a historical comedy of errors, this is the movie for you. If you want a comedy about the Roman empire, I think you'll find something else to watch.

The film is a good example of how to make a French movie with a high level of quality. It is not perfect, but the story is good, the acting is good, the direction is good. The music is great. I am a big fan of Sissi's music. The story is a little bit far-fetched, but it is not really a problem. I am sure you can find a lot of things to like in this movie. I am sure you will enjoy it.
