Trailers & Clips
Sixteen-year-old Claude (Ernst Unhauer) insinuates himself into the house of fellow high school student Rapha (Bastien Ughetto), writing about his family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction for his jaded literature teacher Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events. Kristin Scott-Thomas plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary art gallery director who avidly follows Claude’s semi-imaginary escapades, while Emmanuelle Seigner plays Rapha’s mom, Claude’s object of desire.
“One of this year’s outstanding films. Francois Ozon’s diabolical comedy is sinfully delicious!”
Stephen Holden
“Surprising… intriguing and addictive.”
Doris Toumarkine
“A remarkable film!”
Scott Foundas
“A impressive and handsomely assembled film that’s as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.”
Boyd Van Hoeij
“Brilliant… deliciously witty and cunningly clever!”
