Storyline

Fatal is now a huge star. Millions of fans, dozens of hits, 4 Music Music Awards of the best artist of the year, a clothing line, a magazine and soon opening its own amusement park: Fataland. It is the undisputed N ° 1. Apparently everything is going well - but in reality, Fatal no longer knows where he is going, because he no longer knows where he comes from: from his beginnings he makes believe that he grew up in the ghetto. When in fact he was born in a small village of Savoy, in the heart of the Alps. But we can not be a "gansta" when we are a son of shepherds of Savoy, then Fatal has preferred to hide its origins and forget its past . Written by OzzyPsycko

Great movie folks!
8 May 2011 | by robbie_jay1983See all my reviews

First of all let's make some things clear from the start: this movie looses 90% of it's charm if you're not French. Most of the fun comes from cultural references and playing with the meaning of words/names. Going even further, on the language level, one must master both English and French slang to fully appreciate the puns or the songs lyrics. Therefore I don't find it unusual that this great movie didn't received a better score, as it's targeted to a restrained audience.

I've heard people out-there saying that this is just another Jackass movie. I'd say that that's far from being true and that kind of opinion is probably the result of watching this movie without the prerequisites I was mentioning in the above paragraph. As far as I'm concerned this film is unique and like Sasha Baron did with his characters (Bruno, Borat, Ali G) so did Michael Youn by putting a lot of effort into creating a character you enjoy watching and listening to.

Every scene is carefully planned and every set is filled with details that will make you laugh out loud. You can watch it over and over again and still find something to laugh about.

I'm going to stop here as I'm under the impression that I'm preaching to the choir and those of you reading this comment already dig this movie :) For those of you planning to rent or buy the DVD, please pass the checklist at point 1) and if everything checks then go ahead with your plan and you'll be pleased with your choice!
