When scanning a flee market, Michel buys an album, very precious to him. He rushes home to listen to it. As soon as he turns it on and settles down, he is disturbed by noise and constant disasters that don't allow him to just enjoy his album in peace.Written by

Piece of mind
A lot of things have to happen for someone not being able to get a bit of tranquility. Peace and quiet is something people want, but cannot always get. In this case some of the "trouble" is self inflicted to say the least. The main character is a bit despicable, which makes a connection a bit tough, but the comedy still comes rolling in, in a nice pace, if you don't like how convenient the events unfold.
Having said that, there are obviously far better french comedies that have been made the past few years, but I still loved how over the top and completely crazy this went. The main actor is well known in France and he has a natural charisma about him. It depends how much you like him, whether you'll like the movie or not ... it's not an easy one to go with, but if you do, you can have a fun ride
