Aro Recommended Dinner Game, The


France 1998, 80 minutes
Dir. Francis Veber
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy

Topics: Bad Taste.


Aroview: Gourmet-grade French farce from the maestro of the genre - well-packaged, delivered without haste, indeed delicious, if a slightly smaller portion than you'd hoped. Riffing on favourite Gallic themes of snobbery and cruelty, affluent publisher Thierry Lhermitte competes with his elite friends to claim their invited dinner guest as the biggest 'idiot', but the tables turn as prize buffoon Jacques Villeret inadvertently sets off a chain of hilarious reversals and complications.
