A film by Fred Cavayé
Cast: Bérénice Bejo, Suzanne Clément, Stéphane De Groodt
English title: Nothing to hide
The title translation however is The game. A bunch of friends at dinner time decide to play a “game”: each must place his mobile phone in the middle of the table and each text, phone call, mail, Facebook message, must be read out loud and the phone calls are to be listened on speaker. And yes the nightmare is going to begin.
It is the evening of the total lunar eclipse at the beginning of the 21st century that the couple Marie and Vincent have chosen to invite their best friends to a good meal at home. Remake of the Italian film PERFETTI SCONOSCIUTI (2016), why is that not surprising me at all. Ok then the thing is that we missed and messed up some comedies the last few years that this one stand out and thank god. Here is a casting nothing but stars and it works here. Be Careful what you wish for and make sure that not one sees your cell phone. The thing is here the cell phone is something private for some people. The director make sure here that there was a little bit of everything in there. People have secret that they don’t want their spouse or friends to know. When the Pandora’s box is open everything could happen. Yes it is a dramatic comedy where you are not going to be bored but you are going to laugh and yes there are times it is going to be serious. Think about it would you want your spouse see you cell phone? Everybody has secrets it is a fact of life. Now that is not a game I am going to play ever well like the rest of you. After such a rush of tension and secrets reaveled how can anyone go home?
