ABSTRACT
The article reports on the film "The Valet," by French filmmaker Francis Veber, which opened the City of Angels, City of Lights French film festival in Los Angeles, California, as of April 2006. Three more remakes of Veber's films are in the works, at more or less active stages of development. It is understandable that remaking Veber should seem like a good idea. His films blend French humor with well-honed scripts and themes in a classic screwball comedy mold. The Valet stars hot comic actor Gad Elmaleh as Francois Pignon, a recurring character in Veber's movies.
