1/8

Abou, 13, is his father’s pride and joy. Unlike his 3 brothers, he’s ‘top of his class’. Well, that’s what he pretends to be. Actually, Abou is more the king of lies and rigged report cards! When the first parent-teacher conference comes up, he will stage the biggest lie of his life: hire fake teachers to meet his father, while his real teachers will meet his fake father. It should be easy... in theory!

Stéphane Ben Lahcène's first film clearly lacks neither energy nor ambition. While being quite humorous, it deals with many topics ranging from education to immigration and even burn-out (...) Michele Laroque is very convincing and even moving as an understanding teacher in a suburban school.
