To Josephine already nearly thirty, and life somehow still did not develop – boring work for which the heroine regularly is late at two o’clock every day, lack of will power to be engaged in the health and a figure, and the main thing – total absence of private life. Well not to consider for the relations half-hour meetings of times a week with the married man. Finally the young lady is demented by the forthcoming wedding of the sister. Josephine thinks out to itself the groom to salt it, but gets to a trap of the inventions. Now she should hide from native and friends because it is happy only in words.
At the heart of the scenario of the film Penelope Bazhye’s published in France from 2008 to 2011 the comic strip lies
The name «I want as Bridzhet» – the invention of the Russian hire. In the homeland the picture carries the unpretentious name "Josephine" and for the neighbourhood and comparison with "Bridget Jones’s Diary" and its sequel does not apply at all. Our experts in marketing decided the viewer to develop at once in the correct direction and even to give accelerations that doubts in a picture choice for viewing were not any. It worked – halls of cinemas will be filled for certain by girls or enamoured couples of which are expected not such by the bad comedy.
Maril Berri had to carry in a shot a slip on the back to show the disproportions conceived by authors in Josephine’s figure
Once, in Soviet period, the French and Italian women had a reputation for examples of beauty at cinema. Now Paris any more that. The main character – the darling, though the near modern woman. In thirty it still lives parties, walks, sometimes work, but does not reflect at all on a family. When from the sister, found to itself the groom, the prevention that it is so possible also absolutely alone to remain sounds, Josephine begins searches of the prince, but all white horses stand for a long time on a leash. In general, it is universal history which could occur and receive the screen version though in Hollywood, though in Russia.
However «I want as Bridzhet» it is removed in France, in the country with extensive romantic and comedy traditions. Alas, at all comelines and ability to laugh over itself the actress to Marila Berri staring, too often rolls down not in subtle romantic humour, and in a kitsch and theatricality. The heroine several times in the film mentions Woody Allen, and attempt to remove the intelligent comedy about the people who have stumbled about life is looked through, however instantly all "kulturnost" sinks in not too pertinent jokes, is frequent below a belt or unduly rigid for the romantic film (the dead doggie at the very beginning of the film not too wants to laugh).
However, it is rather a problem of the director and the script writer on one face Anyes Obadya – painfully the picture is cut carelessly out. Business at all in the unpretentious worn-out idea that the true love not over oceans, most likely, lives, and at the next table on work. It only the stamp which it is possible to decorate and give out with taste for something original, but here is not enough one diligence. The author as if collected in any order some gags and ridiculous situations which should occur to her heroine, and then tried to connect these points, as in children’s game. But even if to connect them in a true order, the picture can appear a real trifle.
In «I want as Bridzhet» and occurs. The audience moves from a scene to a scene, not especially worrying about the heroine who with such level of nonsense is to be protected from men absolutely. The audience laughs in the correct places, to guess further events it is possible, so the film flies by imperceptibly, but also any trace does not leave. In due time Bridzhet Jones frankly talked from the screen to the whole generation. Josephine did not receive even the minimum attention, what there the world popularity.
