Points for novelty, but the story was merely decent.

The goofy, theatrical overacting of Dujardin’s performance is often found in French cinema and usually annoying, but here it fits the part perfectly. Valentin is suave, funny, and emotional. A great performance. Bejo is good, too.

The dance number at the end is not perfect but pretty impressive nonetheless.
