Every Wednesday night, wealthy Paris publisher Pierre Brochant and his friends try to outdo one another by bringing the most flagrantly idiotic person they can find to join them for dinner. He who finds the biggest dope, wins. Pierre thinks he's got a thoroughbred nincompoop on his hands in accountant Francois Pignon, who works for the the Finance Ministry and builds scale replicas of monuments from matchsticks. What Pierre hasn't counted on is Pignon's ability to generate compound problems.


I'll keep it short and sweet. This movie was hilarious - even if you've never watched a French movie in your life, this is one of the quirkiest movies you'll ever see. I was laughing the entire time. The acting was good and the directing average. But the writing and screenplay were absolutely fantastic. You don't need to know French to watch it as long as you can get your hands on a copy with subtitles. Many foreign movies require you pay attention to the imagery, etc., thus making it hard for those needing subtitles. In this one the script carries the movie. I watched Le Diner de cons about 5 or 6 years ago, and it definitely sparked my interest in foreign movies 10/10
