Cesar is a young schoolboy living in Paris with his family. Their life is ordinary, but Cesar wants more excitement (which he creates, in one instance, by claiming to his teachers that his father has been arrested). During the school holidays, Cesar and his friend Sarah decide to help their mutual friend, Morgan, find his father who supposedly lives in London. Each one tells their parents that they're staying with the other two, and together they sneak out to begin their search. Written by

Moi, César is a lovely french movie. But it's partly American styled. I liked the music very much. It made me think of Yann Tiersen, the composer of the music of Amélie Poulain and Délicatessen. The music gives you an alternative American feel-good movie-feeling. The film is about the serious worries of a 10 year old boy, not really satisfied with his life and his looks, and in love with Sarah. Together with Gloria (she made me think of a punk-version of Whoopi Goldberg) they're looking for Morgan's father in London. The story is not very complicated, it's just an ideal film for a cost evening. Nice film shooting, brilliant music,good actors... very nice!
