Storyline

Damien is a professor of Chinese civilization. Just now he has a problem: he has promised Iva, his life companion, to ask his father Sébastien, a state councilor, to intervene in favor of Zorica, an illegal alien. In theory, Sébastien Hauer is influential enough to keep Zorica from being expelled from France but the trouble is that he has always despised his son. As for Damien, he hates his old man. It looks as if Zorica is not on track to stay in the country for much longer... Written by Guy Bellinger

Fun and wit in one film
7 September 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A marriage on the rocks, where both sides look for something on the side. The only sparkle comes in the form of the Mrs asking her husband for assistance with an acquaintance's immigration issues.

In theory it should have been easy; his father is a high ranking civil servant. Given however the dysfunctional relationship between father and son, it makes it a rather mammoth task and it gets more interesting when the son falls for the émigré and thus intensifies the efforts.

In a typically French fashion, this comedy score high and wit and sophistication with a generous dose of satire towards modern life and interpersonal relationships.
