This is an easy going gentle comedy from France. The plot is simple but sets up some nice jokes and the film has a satisying finish that is typically french.

Don't expect a gag a minute, this is not that sort of film. It has serious moments, sad moments and funny moments. There are not any outstandingly hilarious moments but the film overall is very affable and a pleasant way to pass the evening.

A funnier alternative is the film Le Placard (aka the closet) - also starring M Auteuil it is a better, funnier film and I highly recommend it. Another to consider is Le Diner de cons, again very funny. Both these films have the same funny/sad/serious elements that are staples of this type of french cinema.

If you are looking for fast action with humour this is not the film for you, instead try Wasabi or Taxi, both hilarious french films with plenty of action.

Again I have been purchasin loads of French films so that French A level student can get used to hearing the French speaking French! It was surprising how much I myuself understood even though its some 30+ years since I did French at school. The story is enjoyable, pleasant and easy to follow even if your french is limited. I recommend.

I admit to being a Daniel Auteuil fan. Few other performers can convincingly project such naive innocence as can Auteuil. That's what enhances the humor of this comedic Parisian love tale.

Convincingly playing a harried maitre d' at a fancy restaurant, Auteuil creates Antoine who is totally dedicated to his position. Throughout the film, Antoine never has enough time for anything because just as he is about to conquor one problem -- on his frantic job or out of breath life -- another one pops up to take its place. And so as the film opens, after bustling through the restaurant ardoitly solving kitchen problems on the run, Antoine literally dashes across the nightime park to fetch a special wine for one of his restaurant's clients (all the while reassuring his fiancee via mobile phone that he'll be with her as soon as he gets THIS problem solved).

Antoine comes upon a burly agitated man about to hang himself from a tree. What to do? Ignore the suicide and get back to his pressing task or stop the suicide? Given Antoine's character, he has no choice other than to not only rescue Louis (Jose Garcia) but to virtually adopt him. Thereby thickens the plot because Antoine's life is already overcrowded (including his live-in, long suffering fiancee). Amid trying to keep everyone happy (including his demanding boss -- a frantic widow), Antoine sets out to try solving the intensely neurotic Louis' failed romance with the willowly Blanche, played by Sandrine Kiberlain who imparts to the character an ephemeral detachment.

Of course, comedy derives from the impossible complexity of Antoine's life -- which he keeps making more complicated by impossible acts of kindness. To keep an eye on Louis, Antoine hires him as a sommelier (wine steward) over the objections of the owner.

With the writers and directors having been brave enough to include a subject as heavy as attempted suicide in the plot of this farce, I thought that that I could be in for an interesting and good French Farce. The actors excel, the cinematography is good, as is the sound, the music and indeed most things about this film.

But! I have given Après Vous only two stars, as it felt too contrived and somewhat repetitive. It is a farce so I shouldn't expect it to be believable, but most of the acting is portrayed seriously and believable to the extent that if you concentrated on 90% of the actors you would think you were watching a serious film and not a comedy.

There were some funny scenes early on in the film but later on it just seemed laboured.

I realise that comedy is subjective and maybe I just didn't get the joke, but my overall impression is that it missed the mark: It was nearly a good dramatic picture; it was nearly a good comedy, it was nearly a good romantic film.

It nearly was but sadly it wasn't.

I had watched Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources (five star in my opinion) the night before watching Après Vous, which makes me realise that no matter how good an actor is in a film (Daniel Auteuil in this case) the film has to get all aspects right (story, acting, direction etc) to make a good film. Maybe it was seeing Auteuil in such a great film on the previous night that made this film seem all the more disappointing.

Quite a delicious piece of French film for Daniel Auteuil fans- he has plenty of scenes and he plays a sympathetic character (though some might think he's a bit of a charlatan)- but the plot is a little light and inconsequential. They obviously had a lot of fun making it, as can be seen among the extras, and this gives it a feel good factor. I would recommend three stars for it for a light diversion on a journey, or four if you're an Autueil fan!

I loved this film - it was so funny, though it did have its more serious and sad moments. Its one of those films where you watch the characters having moments of 'epiphany' that suddenly change their lives, which I sometimes find a bit contrived, as this is seldom what happens when you have one of those moments in real life, but this isn't real life, it's a film and it wouldn't be very interesting if the characters just carried on as normal after their 'moment'. It's classic French comedy, with an excellent performance by the brilliant Daniel Auteuil, who I adore, and who plays funny as well as he does serious.
