Synopsis

What is going on here?!? French director, Michel Blanc (as Himself), just doesn't understand why his life is suddenly falling apart. This nightmarish comedy-thriller is all about identity. What defines a famous person? Is it their public self or their private self? What is the public's legitimate claim on their fame? With the glitterati of French Cinema starring as themselves, the anonymous faces in the audience gain a glimpse into the downside of public recognition.

French Humor

In Cannes, the director and actor Michel Blanc is accused of sexual abuse by an actress and arrested. His friend Carole Bouquet decides to help him and they find his perfect double Patrick Olivier in the countryside of France. Patrick accepts minor jobs posing of Michel Blanc and when the farce is disclosed, he offers to replace Michel Clanc while he enjoys vacation. When Michel Blanc returns, he cannot prove who he is.

"Grosse fatigue" is a cult French comedy with the cameo and minor participation of famous people from the cinema industry including Roman Polanski. The storyline is original but the humor is unfunny, suitable only for French audiences. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Estressadíssimo" ("Under Great Stress")

Totally unexpected treat

This film was made in 1994 when Altman did READY TO WEAR(in which Michel Blanc appeared coincidentally)and the extraordinary thing is that GROSSE FATIGUE accomplishes to be more of an Altman film than PRET A PORTER. It is to Blanc's credit that he is able to make the first really Gaelic silly American film with a major cast of well known French actors as well as people like Regine and director Roman Polanski in cameos which emphasize the problems of French cinema and its state at the time;and even how it is today. There are moments reminiscent of Blake Edwards PINK PANTHER absurdities with gorgeous Bouquet doing a wonderful takeoff of Capucine.Blanc himself does a French Woody Allen without effort even though his opinions are less coy and more direct than Allen's typical delivery.Paris, Provence; even Cannes or the Carlton NEVER looked better and made me yearn to hop a concorde.I have no idea how I missed this when it first came out, but I am still laughing at how much fun I had at discovering this quirky, yet well executed comedy. The mistakes made are more charming than jarring and Paris never looked more Parisian. A unique film from France which deserved more promotion.

Very enjoyable

This is a light comedy, nothing serious, and yet it has something to say.

Especially at the end, when Philip Noiret appears out of nowhere and speaks about the financial decline and near death of the French cinema.

But also when Carol Bouquet "heals" a paralytic and is worshiped by the crowd, to the point that - perhaps - she wonders if she has found her calling in life.

This movie makes fun of movies. If you love movies, you will get a kick out of it.
