25 years old Hippo doesn't have a job, doesn't study either but lives from the money his younger brother earns with dealing and from occasional Poker winnings -- he's a representative of a disillusioned generation, doesn't care what other people think of him. But of all people he falls in love with the ambitioned student Nathalie and soon finds himself forced to think about taking a job. Written by

The film shows the relationship between an unemployed young man (Hippolyte Girardot) and a university student (Mireille Perrier). The story is told from the point of view of Hippo, who has chosen not to get a job but to live off the proceeds of his younger brother's drug dealing. Despite this questionable approach to life the director treats him as a sympathetic character and is aided in this by Girardot playing him as a cool individual. This is contrasted with the character of Nathalie who is regarded as working too hard rather than enjoying her youth. The film has the feel of a romantic comedy, although what comedy there is is at the expense of the female characters and any figures of authority that cross the brothers' path. Ivan Attal gives good support as Hippo's best friend. Overall I found it an entertaining 90 minutes not to be taken too seriously.
