Jean-Pierre Muller is an intellectual with a quiet life. One day he receives a letter of the Government saying he’s been appointed tutor of troubled kid Antoine. He files a request to refuse it but the more he tries to get away from the responsability more he gets involved and has to face important issues in his life.
This film is a delight from start to finish. The lead is one of France’s greatest actors who has made many films and who is as delightful as ever. In fact, the entire cast is just wonderful. The story is classic farce in the Noel Coward tradition with sharp and funny dialogue and delightful characters. Even the bad guys in this film are likable. Astonishingly, there is not even a moment of sex which for a French film is really something. But you never miss it, the story is going so fast and the twists and turns never stop. Everything about the film is first rate. There is not a sour note in the entire story. The script is an absolute gem and the actors take advantage of every nuance.
