News from Planet Mars (2016)

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

French comedy, dubbed into Russian, with slightly wonky English subtitles, this wasn’t easy. If you can find a copy with the original audio and decent subtitles then... nope, still can’t recommend it. For starters this is the first French comedy I’ve watched that’s not made me laugh. Maybe 1 or 2 minor giggles and that’s it. There’s some charm to it, but not nearly enough. It’s the kind of film you might find yourself watching years ago, trapped in a crap hotel abroad with no English language TV channels, trying to convince yourself this is culture. It’s not, it’s just bad cinema.
