I found this movie as a fantastic version of the cultural stuff, so much available in France, and so much missing in the Anglo-Saxon world (it is all about happy endings and vampires, isn't?). The movie touches on many different subjects (neo-liberalism including) but in the form of a comedy, and there are many things to laugh about! The cast is hilarious in a literal sense of the word. Watching Depardieu playing a communist is especially amusing, considering that in real life he renounced being French and became a Russian in order to avoid paying taxes. This added some additional food for thought, taking into account that Depardieu is an amazing actor and is very believable in the role of a communist...
