I watched this movie at the cinema today. It was released in my country over two months ago. Many outdoor cinemas have choosed this movie so far which it means that it's still popular to the Greek audience. Besides, French movies have many fans in my country (certaily middle age and old people) and they are released in different cinemas almost every week. Don't forget that France releases many movies every year (2nd worldwide) and it remains of the most movie going countries in the world. French box office was so successful in 2011-2012 (astronomical earnings) because there were so many successful and critically acclaimed movies those years (The Artist, The Intouchables etc).
Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au Bon Dieu? was a pleasant movie with likeable performances. Philippe de Chauveron directed the movie and he wrote the script along with Guy Laurent. The film contained many acid comments about the problem of mass immigration in France. It had many very funny scenes but it had also some colorful characters..Nevertheless, it had a childish atmosphere which it caused pleasure to every person and it made you see the French in a different light. I said this because there are many people (non-french) how believe the French are the most arrogant people in Europe. However, they are always likeable in their movies and they have offered us remarkable movies which have caused laughter or sorrow. The total length of "Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au Bon Dieu?" lasts only 97 minutes and I guess that Philippe de Chauveron collaborated so much with the editing team to have a result like this. It didn't have very lenthy scenes because the latter changed so fast, it had uncountable dialogues which it demanded the attention of the viewer. The truth is that the majority of French comedies are verbose and it ended up to be a little bit irritating. They could be theatrical plays too because their outdoor scenes are always minimal without meaning that they are not good suggestions. Personally, I really enjoyed my time at the cinema, I laughed so much (both audience and my friends) and I would suggest it to someone who wants to watch it in the cinema.
"Qu'est-ce qu'on a fait au Bon Dieu?" is the most commercial movie this year in France (so far). It managed to attract over 200,000 viewers on the first day and its total earnings are exceptional for a French production. It's already one of the most successful movies and its numbers are very close to the Top 20 of the 100 highest-grossing films of all time in France (both French and non-French). I guess that the producers will make a sequel based on this huge success. It has also a satifying average score in Imdb (7,0) though I would give a better rate because of the original script. I wish my country had funny stories like this because new Greek films are usually involved with sex, cheating and vulgarism..
