Storyline

Silently and hopelessly in love with brilliant and egotistical Professor Quignard, the shy Christophine has been pursuing her PhD at his research lab for eight years. Now, the professor and his team are on the verge of making a discovery that will rock the world of science and medicine: the key to universal immunity through 'ppm', a miracle penguin protein. All they are missing is approval from the funding board to begin human testing. In a crazy gesture to finally get her beloved's attention, Christophine injects herself with the compound, thereby, becoming the first ever human test subject. Instantly, Christophine, whose name he didn't even know, becomes the center of Quignard's focus, as he and his ever-devoted lab rat secretly embark on one far-fetched experiment protocol after another. until it becomes clear that immunity could be triggered by... lovemaking!

Quite a fresh and relaxing experience
15 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

Just saw the movie at a pre-premiere last night in Paris during the Champs-Elysées Film Festival and it's full of quality laughs and gives a fresh view for everyone looking for a relaxing comedy to watch. It also has dramatic elements to touch your heart and, at least for me, quite an unexpected ending. In many ways it resembles a typical french comedy, which is always a good thing since they are usually much more direct and naturalistic. I hope it'll do well with its french release in one week. Stable 8/10 mostly for originality,interesting new view and steady performance from both the charming Charlotte Le Bon and Guillaume Canet :)
