Editorial Reviews

Quentin is an amiable idiot who drives everyone crazy with his mindless, incessant chatter. After a botched hold-up, he's thrown in a prison cell with Ruby, a hard-boiled thief who refuses to speak at all. The unlikely pair escape from jail together. Unable to shake the cumbersome but oddly helpful Quentin, Ruby is pursued by his former gang and the police, both hoping to lay hands on the 20 million euros he has secretly hidden away. SHUT UP is the ultimate buddy caper-comedy topped by hilarious performances from Jean Reno (Leon: The Professional, Mission: Impossible) and G‚rard Depardieu (Jean de Florette, Man in the Iron Mask).

Format: DVD
A brilliant comic performance from Gerard Depardieu as a simpleton so annoying and talkative it's hard to believe marks another hilarious collaboration between the heralded star and writer/director Francis Veber and actor Jean Reno. The group from Les Fugitifs, remade in America as Three Fugitives, is equally as good here. Depardieu will have you laughing out load much of the time. Reno is no slouch either as the hardened and dangerous mobster out for revenge against the man who took his only love away. It gets more complicated, and more hilarious by the minute when Quentin (Depardieu) attaches himself to Ruby (Reno), his only friend.

The talent and quality of the three principals, both in front of and behind the camera make this film what others in this genre try to be but are not. In short, this is dumb comedy for smart people, a brilliantly executed exercise in making us smile while feeling a tug in our hearts. A clumsy robbery, an escape from prison that will leave your eyes watering, a can which makes cow sounds and a tender moment between Reno and lovely Leonor Varella all add up to a laugh riot with an underlying warmth missing from others of it's ilk. The mere image of Quentin and Ruby opening a pub together is enough to make you smile.

Depardieu is hysterically funny and Reno is terrific as the criminal who first can't believe Depardieu is even for real, since no one could be that annoying or dense, then can't believe he's softening toward him the closer he gets to carrying out his plans. The two are handcuffed together without any handcuffs, and it's an absolutely delightful ride for the viewer. This is a lowbrow comedy with class. If you like belly laughs, and want to see what's wrong with the moronic films often passed off as comedy today, get a copy of Tais Toi to remind yourself funny films are still being made. A real winner.

Format: DVD
"Tais-toi!" (meaning `Shut-up') is also known as "Ruby & Quentin" in some countries. Whatever it is, the film's greatest asset is its stars - Gérard Depardieu and Jean Reno. In spite of the capable supports from Jean-Pierre Malo, Richard Berry, and Leonor Varela, the film belongs to the two leading stars.

Gérard Depardieu plays Quentin, a criminal who made a silly mistake in commiting 'bank robbery.' Now in prison, Quentin has a knack of irritating the guys around him by his constant gab. He is the worst kind of inmate to be with, who never stops asking things a single moment, and he thinks he is a very nice person trying to be gentle while you are most likely driven to madness by his constant chatting.

Jean Reno is a professional killer Ruby, who has stolen money from the mobster/his former employer Vogel (Jean-Pierre Malo), and hid it somewhere he alone knows. Both the boss of the gangster and Police Commissionaire Vernet (Richard Berry) want to know the place of the money, but Ruby never speaks a single word about anything in prison.

Now what would happen if Ruby and Quentin are thrown into the same cell? What if they manage to escape from the prison, running away from the mob and the police? You may call it all too familiar, this story about the two opposites, but French veteran writer/director Francis Veber turns this situation into an enjoyable, well-made comedy, of which story plays second fiddle to the chemistry of two characters. Talkative Gérard Depardieu are laconic Jean Reno are always amusing to see for the totally different reasons.

I really enjoyed this movie. Depardieu shows his versatility as an actor this time playing the role of a very simpleminded but talkative fugitive, who ends up sharing a cell with a much more sinister character played by Jean Reno. Very watchable movie with much heart.

I have been enjoying the films made by this director for over 30 years already. I remember his films with Pierre Richard from the 70s and 80s very well. His name is like a quality mark to me. If I see "directed by F.Veber", I know that the quality is guaranteed. It also applies to the latest "Tais-toi!" (Ruby & Quentin) film. If you love French comedies you will enjoy the movie without any doubt.

Format: DVD
Tais Toi (also called Ruby and Quentin) is one hilarious movie! Starring Jean Reno and Gerard Depardieu, and directed by Francis Veber, this movie starts and finishes with ridiculous (but funny) scenarios. The whole movie is somewhat unrealistic, with incompetent and weak police officers, 6 stolen vehicles in 48 hours, 2 gunshot wounds that seemingly had little effect on their victims, and the good guys always winning. BUT, you do not watch movies like this for their plausibility. Rather, slapstick humour, dark moments filled with laughter, and overall fun times rule the day in this film.

This movie has great one-liners and minor characters. The French is not too difficult to understand, so if you speak a little, you might catch some of the dialogue. Even for those who don't speak French, the humour translates well, and often does not even require words! I showed it to 2 Americans and 2 Japanese people last night, and they were howling with laughter throughout!

Rent it and if you like it, buy it! (I'm quite sure you'll enjoy!)
