About the Film

Neïla Salah grew up in Créteil and dreams of becoming a lawyer. On her first day at the great Parisian university of Assas, she confronts Pierre Mazard, a professor known for his provocations and his slippages. To redeem his reputation, he agrees to prepare Neïla for the prestigious contest of eloquence. At the same time cynical and demanding, Pierre could become the mentor she needs ... But they must both overcome their prejudices.

Praise

Camélia Jordana won the César Award for Most Promising Actress for her performance.

The characters are compelling enough to avoid turning into major clichés, while stars Camelia Jordana and Daniel Auteuil prove to be a winning pair.
– Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
Yvan Attal unites a singular duo of actors in a comedy which plays on the art of rhetoric with a clever charm.
- Le Figaro (France)
