France, today.


Simultaneously, a retired couple overwhelmed by debt tries to win a dance contest, as the minister of economy is suspected of tax evasion, and a teenage girl encounters a sexual maniac, while a young lawyer attempts to climb the social ladder.


When the shoe drops, the winner won’t necessarily be the one we expected.

Director

After training as an actor, Jean Christophe Meurisse created the Chiens de Navarre company in 2005, directing shows for the theater. His plays have been noticed and internationally acclaimed by critics and audience.


The most recent works includes ‘Jusque dans vos bras’ (2017), ‘Tout le monde ne peut pas être orphelin’ (2019) and ‘La Peste c’est Camus mais la grippe est-ce Pagnol?’ (2020).


In addition, Jean-Christophe Meurisse directed in 2013 his first medium-length film ‘Il est des Nôtres’, awarded with several awards, including the Audience and Best Actor Awards at the Silhouette Festival in Paris (September 2013) or the Ciné+ Grand Prize at the Brive Festival (April 2014).


In 2015, he directed his first feature film ‘Apnee’ which premiered at Cannes Critics’ Week in 2016. The film won the Jury Prize (best direction) at the International Cult Film Festival of Trouville-sur-mer in 2016. The film was nominated in the best first film category at the French ‘Lumières Award’ in January 2017. Jean-Christophe is regional curling champion in 2016, 2017 and 2018 with his club AS Pontivy.
