Reviews

French black comedy from Etienne Chatiliez, director of 'Tatie Danielle'. Tanguy is 28 years old and shows no sign of leaving home. His parents, keen to have the house to themselves again after their prolonged stint of picking up after him and paying his bills, decide to drive him out by making home no longer the comfortable, convenient option that he thought it was.

Tanguy was a huge it in France but never travelled to the English-speaking world. It's a slow starter, but once the film hits its stride it's often very funny, with Andre Dussolier and Sabine Azema's attempts to get their 28-year-old son to leave home escalating from childish pranks to make his life Hell to legal action (with the judge helpfully providing Dussolier with the name of some hoods to beat up the lad). Not great and a little overlong, but it is very entertaining.

Extras are limited to a stills gallery and a couple of trailers, but the DVD offers a decent widescreen transfer.

"Tanguy" is a 28 year old college lecturer... still living with his parents.
The film focuses on his parents' increasingly desperate attempts to get their son to (literally) move on. You can't blame them - Tanguy treats their flat like a hotel and causes no end of sleep depravation for his parents by frequently bringing home "company"... well, you get the idea.
The revenge tactics employed by his parents are hilarious, and range from the deliciously petty to the strangely dark.
There are too many to list here, and in anycase, this is one of those comedic gems that just begs for you to discover it by yourself.
The cast are all superb - Tanguy's emotional shallowness makes it rather easy for you enjoy seeing his parents get their own back.
A snappy script is thankfully unhampered by the subtitling - in fact I'd say subtitles work much better in this case, dubbing would have lost half the comedy.
Overall, a fantasically enjoyable film.

Tanguy is another masterpiece of French humour.

A nice and wealthy couple has a son... Did I say "a son"? Sorry. I meant "THE son" you have always dreamed of.

Tanguy is smart and polite.
He's humble and wise.
He speaks several languages and has done as many doctorates.
He is (not) really handsome and women can't get over him.

BUT he is also 28 years old and still lives with mommy and daddy. And they cannot stand this situation anymore.

Instead of simply telling him to go away, they find a much funnier (and complicated) solution. They just make his life at home a hell. As the movie goes, they get more and more inventive.

The first time I saw this movie, I hated it. I thought it was merely cruel. Then I watched it again a few years later and I loved it.

It is extremelly sarcastic and well imagined. Unlike the Diner de Cons, for instance, you don't grow found of the main character. So each time you see him suffer, you are not torn between pleasure and guilt.

It is funny, it is cruel, it is cynic : it is French.
Don't take my word for it, watch it. ;)

Tanguy has become a "way of Life" is well played and it has become famous as still very much one of to days problems.
The actors are very credible and could open unending conversation.

I saw the film years ago but had to add it to my collection as it is a way of life which is very relevant in the end of the 20th century and 21st all over the world.

Buy it and make sure your late teenagers/young adults watch it too...it can only bring thoughts to everybody.
The happy yet unusual ending add to the quality of the story.

Great fun film which we used as a French lesson. Could never really happen (some incidents are a bit silly) but very funny.

Positively hilarious French film!!! I saw it at the cinema when it first came out and loved it. Bought the DVd from Amazon and enjoyed it all over again. I lent the DVD to my English speaking friends who were laughing their heads off too. I cannot recommend this movie enough. You can only imagine what the parents would come up with to make their son leave their apartment after 28 years......LOL.
