Childhood memories of the Nazi occupation inspired this bloated French comedy by Jean-Paul Rappeneau, an uneasy mix of screwball antics and social satire coscripted by Patrick Modiano (Lacombe, Lucien). It's well mounted and lushly photographed, and Rappeneau deftly orchestrates the crowd scenes as Parisian elites flock to Bordeaux, but the large cast doesn't mesh. Leading man Gregori Derangere is so lightweight he's transparent, Isabelle Adjani overacts as a frivolous and conniving movie star, Gerard Depardieu hasn't got much to do as a government minister, and someone should have postdubbed Peter Coyote's atrocious German and shaky French. In French and German with subtitles. PG-13, 114 min.
