Simon has been a compulsive liar since childhood. His family, friends and colleagues organize an intervention to tell him that enough is enough and that he must stop. Unfortunately, it turns into a confrontation and Simon denies having told all these lies. The next morning, he wakes up in a reality where all the lies he has ever told are proven facts: his car always has a flat tire, his colleague is sleeping at work, his sister-in-law has a crush on him. - In the eyes of others, this reality has always been like that. Fortunately, Simon's twin brother is also aware that this reality is not their original reality and he pushes Simon to face his problem in order to get out of this bad situation.
"Menteur" ("Compulsive Liar") is a hilarious romp that will you have you rolling in the aisles.
In this Québecois comedy, a compulsive liar must learn to tell the truth when his falsities turn into reality.
Overall, "Menteur" really delivers from its opening moments until the end. Louis-José Houde is a firecracker and delivers an unforgettable performance. Antoine Bertrand is delivers a solid comedic performance out of his comfort zone. A two-hour, over-the-top laugh fest that you will be thinking of long after the credits roll. I really enjoyed this comedy.
Go see it.
