“Le Doudou”: a comic tandem on a bear’s track
Employed at Roissy airport, Sofiane excels in the messy shenanigans and the sales pitch. Discovering the search for a lost teddy bear, he hopes at first to scam parents at bay. But ends up sharing the obsessed daddy’s obsession: to find the precious cuddly toy (Le doudou).
First production of Philippe Mechelen and Julien Hervé, this “buddy movie” is much more friendly than Les Tuche, the hit series created by the duo. Because they rub shoulders there in good intelligence and with the rhythm of the absurd (a psychopathic dog-keeper persuaded that his mastiff is his “daughter”, late and late breed castellans), a point of incorrectness (Isabelle Sadoyan, in her final role, plays with an old Alzheimer resistant woman revealing her collabo sympathies, as well as a certain tenderness more and more assumed by Kad Merad. Heavy eyelid of patriarch Danny Glover, contained effects, it thus confirms in the popular comedy the turn taken with Comme des rois. It is therefore to Malik Bentalha that now falls the use of the mosquito, zinzibulating its fake apologies and myths wobbly between two cavalcades.
Adroitly written and dialogued, The Doudou wisely fulfills his contract, and even keeps a precious screenwriting pear for the final thirst – to use it during the film would have been of a mediocrity without name. It was not won by the synopsis and the poster, but we must admit that this is a good surprise.https://www.the-locus.com/le-doudou-a-comic-tandem-on-a-bears-track/https://www.the-locus.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/5319024_7_9468_kad-merad-a-droite-et-malik-benthala-dans-la_7eab5f0a623d6829a48e50960d059a37.jpghttps://www.the-locus.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/5319024_7_9468_kad-merad-a-droite-et-malik-benthala-dans-la_7eab5f0a623d6829a48e50960d059a37-150x150.jpgMOVIEScinema,film,french,ledoudou,movieEmployed at Roissy airport, Sofiane excels in the messy shenanigans and the sales pitch.
