French tennis star Gaël Monfils is in the fight!
What not to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.
Lest I lead you to think that the French have it in for bad American films, here's a French bomb.
Frère et sœur (Brother and Sister). French made-for-tv movie. Directed by Denis Malleval, 2012.
With Bernard Le Coq, Roxane Potereau, and Jacques Sereys.
A fifty-something lawyer and confirmed bachelor sees his father return after a fifty year absence accompanied by a teenager who turns out to be his daughter.
► This comedy that wants to be funny, but isn't, has little to offer the viewer or the main cast, except to put them ill-at-ease.
For all audiences.
