La Vérité si je mens ! (Would I Lie to You) by Thomas Gilou, 1997 (NR)

with José Garcia (Now You See Me, Asterix at the Olympic Games, Trouble Every Day), Richard Anconina, Aure Atika, Anthony Delon, Sabrina Van Tassel, Richard bohringer, Gilbert Melki (Côte d'Azur - Crustacés et coquillages), Amira Casar, Bruno Solo, Vincent Elbaz, Elie Kakou, Adriano Wajskol

In this hit French comedy, jobless loner Eddie Vuibert (Richard Anconina) gets a lucky break when a rich Jewish entrepreneur mistakes him for a Jew and gives him a sweet job in the Parisian fashion district. Awash in champagne, fancy cars and beautiful women, Eddie finds himself hanging by a thread as he fakes his way through Sephardic culture and the fashion industry. Scene-stealing José Garcia co-stars as Eddie's clowning pal Serge.
This is a classic comedy, in France. The sense of humor, the inside look into the Jewish community in the Sentier, the business, the wittiness, and the feeling the actors had a good time. It has a beautiful love story, the soundtrack was a blast... Of course, fifteen years have past and some of the fashion is outdated but overall, it is still a funny movie to watch. Now I wonder how New Yorkers for instance would receive the movie, or actually anybody outside of France...
