Saw this at Odeon Leeds Bradford,which was about 60% full (difficult to tell with so many latecomers). The disruption from the latecomers was the only negative of the evening.

This was an amazing film- real laugh out loud moments, and unexpected (but not cruel) comments. The energy of Driss and the pathos of Phillipe's situation dominated, but there were little diversions with other characters. THE dance (to Earth Wind and Fire), and the modern art critique were amusing distractions, and the real photos at the end added another bonus.

I had hoped this would allow me to brush up my schoolgirl French, but ...hmmm... many of the words were not in our school syllabus. :giggle:

My initial high hopes for this film were exceeded. Great film - just loved it. And may watch it again at another of the screenings too. (Thanks to ticket fairy again....)

(BTW - can't imagine the Paul Feig and Colin Firth UK version will be as funny.... but I will go and see it!)

going to add my praise to this film. thought it was a real charmer. was thinking that sugarman was going to be the peak of this years freebies for me but this is also a strong contender. there were so many "ohmigoodness i can't believe driss is doing that!" moments that i dare someone not to enjoy it.

an inspirational final scene to show it was based on a true friendship, too 9/10.

downside: i bet someone is already planning the remake :(

I rarely go to the pictures to watch subtitled films but attended after watching the trailer. Fantastic film, the subtitles were not a problem it was engaging from start to finish.

My first ever 10/10 loved it

Saw this at Streatham this morning. A wonderful, wonderful film that's both funny and touching with our French Dustin Hoffman lookalike.

Just adding another 10/10 to the list: uplifting and heartwarming movie and one of the best I've seen this year. Omar Sy's performance totally stole the movie

Saw this at Birmingham Broad Street earlier this evening. Wonderful film. Very funny. Both lead characters were cast superbly. Funny with a heartwarming story.

:D

After watching a brilliant thought-provoking My Brother the Devil, this movie was a light, inspirational and funny story, made even better being a true story. Loved the characters, the relationship and the songs. One to be watched over and over again. 10/10
