Plot & Details
Gerard Jugnot directs and stars in this comedy about a doting father and his daughter who managed to get cast in a film. Yvon Rance (Jugnot), who runs a hair salon in Brittany, only wants his beloved teenaged daughter Laetita (Berenice Bejo) to be happy, something he believes she'll be able to achieve by completing high school and then following in her father's professional footsteps. When Laetita tells him that she has been cast in the latest movie by renowned director Stephane (Antoine Dulery), he is initially unimpressed. He grudgingly relents when he learns that the money she will make for a couple months of work is twice what he makes in a year. This film was screened at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.
