Also this month there are various new additions to the streaming service Amazon Prime Video. There you will find the 3rd part of one of the best French comedy films of recent years there this week. Amazon is smart and has a good laugh. But the spectators can also have a good time.
French film comedies have enjoyed a high reputation among German audiences for decades. Who does not remember the classics with Louis de Funès, Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu. In the 2000s, “Welcome to the Sch’tis” stormed the cinema charts and set unprecedented records in terms of admissions.
Monsieur Claude: Third part from Tuesday on Amazon Prime Video
2014 was similarly cheerful “Monsieur Claude and his Daughters” further. Papa Verneuil (wonderfully played by Asterix actor Christian Clavier) has to make friends with his three multicultural sons-in-law, not easy for the convinced conservative Gaullist. All hopes are now on the fourth daughter, but her chosen one is finally Catholic as desired, but still stands out surprisingly in color.
The film’s original French title (Qu’est-ce qu’on a fait au Bon Dieu?) sums up the dilemma clearly and can be translated as follows: What have we done to God?
We are already seeing Monsieur Claude for the third time:
With revenues of over 170 million euros, “Monsieur Claude and his Daughters” is one of the most successful French films. Unsurprisingly, part 2 followed in 2019 and 2021 as well “Monsieur Claude and his great feast” already the third part of the successful film series.
He can from March 21st can finally be watched on Amazon Prime Video at no extra cost (see on Amazon Prime Video). But is the film worth it?
What good is the second sequel to the film?
The third part is still quite cheerful, but of course it doesn’t quite reach the original with its original freshness. The IMDb therefore gives it an average of 6.1 out of 10 points. The first part still managed a good 7 out of 10 points, the second part fell with 6.1 points, similar to part 3. After all, the second sequel is no worse than the first. Ergo: The film is not a must, but the perfect light entertainment for a rainy Saturday afternoon.
