Le Bal des casse-pieds

Le Bal des casse-pieds

A Feature film by Yves Robert

Produced by Gaumont, Les Productions de la Guéville

Release in France : 12/02/1992


    In this comedy, veterinarian Henri Sauveur (Jean Rochefort) maintains his dignity and calm in the face of an incredible number of irritating or even genuinely upsetting encounters with inveterate pains-in-the-neck. He suffers from the rudeness (and worse) of Parisian drivers, his relatives, and friends and clients. All the same, he manages to convey an admirable appearance of insouciance and a devil-may-care attitude. That is, until he meets the redoubtable Louise Sherry (Miou-Miou). He is so smitten with her charms that his artfully maintained defenses crumble pitifully, and he is reduced to confiding his troubles to a bemused but sympathetic female chimpanzee. This fast-paced comedy features some of France's best-loved actors and comedians, including Claude Brasseur, Jean Yanne, and Jacques Villeret) in walk-on performances.

    There are seventy characters in our film. - Each of them is a bigger pain than the next. In fact there all pains for each other from start to finish. Not just men and women. Children too. And parrots. People in planes. In cars. In nightclubs. Friends. Relatives. Men who love women. Men who love men. Stock-exchange fanatics. Pessimists. Modern-day travellers. Nouvelle cuisine buffs. Recently divorced couples. Giraffes. Cellists. Dogs who are a pain in the neck for people, people who are a pain in the ass for monkeys. It's one hell of a mess...
