User Review

It is NOT a comedy!

Rating: 1/10

The truth may be hard to cope with, but... Coco is a drama. If you're a genuine movie-lover it is impossible not to shed a tear (or buckets of tears) when you watch this "opus". The plot is non existent, the directing is non existent and the acting is even worse. Some may argue that Gad Elmaleh wanted the audience to laugh. I don't think so. This man has got talent and it's impossible to admit that anything may be funny in this film. Let me tell you the truth... Mr Elmaleh is sick of the cinema industry, so he has made a movie which is a statement about the state of dereliction of the filmmakers in France. He wanted us to cry about that long lost past, when French films were done by people like Renoir, Prevert, Truffeau etc. Today, we must be aware of this very sad reality: French cinema is dead. Thank you Mr Elmaleh for this ultimate proof of yours. From now on we will mourn our "Paradis Perdu".
