|Supercondriaque - a super French comedy|
A French 39-years old single, not the most handsome one, believes to have all possible diseases. How can a hypochondriac fall in love? And how can someone fall in love with him? Not an easy task but Dany Boon & Co. manage to make it truth. At least on the screen.
Romain’s doctor and only friend, Dr. Dimitri Zvenka, tries to cure him by dating. Not a classical procedure but it seems to work. Mostly due to Anton Miroslav, the leader of a rebel in Tscherkistan. Tscherkistan does not exist, Anton Miroslav has a different identity and Romain can finally eat with a rat.
There are not too many surprises and that is probably why for some viewers it appears to be “quite a lame romantic comedy”, but there are moments of laugh. Yet, this movie is not to compare with Welcome to the Stiks, but still it gains a lot due to the French comics Dany Boon and Kad Merad. Both actors, by the way, are born to Algerian fathers and French mothers. What we feel for this exceptional film couple? Amour.
