Pierre has been married for 15 years and has two kids.  He still loves his wife and is fulfilled in his role as father.  Overall, he's a contented man.  Until one evening, he meets Elsa.  They chat, laugh, and joke around in a way that doesn't happen every day.

Two weeks later, they run into each other again by chance.  The same easy mutual attraction they felt for one another is just as strong, and they tell each other as much.  A line has been crossed.  But Elsa has a golden rule never to get involved with married men, and Pierre wants to remain faithful.  They go their separate ways, without swapping phone numbers, preferring to let life take its own course.

As the line blurs between how they imagine their relationship and what has actually happened, their fantasies start to merge with reality.

La comédie anti-déprime !

Jacques-Alain Marty dit "Jam" (Christian Clavier), est le patron du grand groupe français Vladis.  Tout lui réussit, mais depuis peu il est sujet à des crises d'angoisse, dont il n'arrive pas à trouver l'antidote.  André Morin (Jacques Villeret) est comptable dans une petite fabrique de jouets.  Véritable icône des petits porteurs, il possède quelques actions du groupe Vladis dont il suit assidûment l'évolution du cours.

Lors d'une assemblée des actionnaires du groupe Vladis, Marty constate qu'il retrouve tous ses moyens en présence de Morin et décide alors de ne plus le lâcher...

The French president has been assassinated, sparking a tense campaign to elect a new leader.  With the election only 25 days away a war begins between the country's top communications strategists.

Welcome to politics in the 21st century.

Presidential advisor Simon Kapita wants to preserve the honour of his assassinated mentor and backs a low-level minister, Anne Visage, believing her to be the only one capable of defeating their political enemy, Prime Minister Philippe Deleuvre.

Meanwhile, Simon's protégé, Ludovic Desmeuzes, has defected to the PM's campaign.  Between these two heirs to the President's legacy, a fratrical war is about to begin.

Les Hommes de l'ombre is a political thriller that takes us deep into the heart of an all-or-nothing campaign.  Amid manoeuvrings of power, treason, love and hate, these shadow men will stop at nothing to see their candidate victorious.

"Oustanding.  A film that makes you laugh, think and cry.  Bravo!" -- Le Parisien


A captivating new star is born in this fabulous, heart-felt comedy hit about a young girl whose close bond to her hearing-impaired family is challenged by the discovery of an extraordinary talent for music.


In the Bélier family, everyone is deaf, except dutiful sixteen-year-old Paula (beautiful newcomer Louane Emera).  She acts as an indispensable interpreter for her parents and younger brother, especially in the running of the family dairy farm.

Though her father has decided to run for mayor – spurred on by her vivacious but over-involved mother – Paula's attentions are very much elsewhere.  She's witnessed the handsome new boy at school sign up for the choir, and impulsively joined too.  It's not long before her music teacher discovers her considerable talent, however his encouragement only exacerbates the matter of Paula's independence.

Building to a heart-soaring and emotional finale, The Bélier Family is a feel-great triumph.  Emera, making her screen début after being discovered on the French edition of The Voice, is a genuine revelation – she lends both sincerity and joy to this deeply moving film that has become a word-of-mouth phenomenon.

Nominated for 6 French Oscars, including Best Film, Actor, Actress and Screenplay.

"Le plus beau film de l'année" -- L'Express
"Eblouissant" -- Le Figaro
"Poétique et déchirant" -- Les Inrockuptibles

Non loin de Tombouctou tombée sous le joug des extrémistes réligieux, Kidane mène une vie simple et paisible dans les dunes, entouré de sa femme Satima, sa fille Toya et de Issan, son petit berger âgé de 12 ans.  En ville, les habitants subissent, impuissants, le régime de terreur des djihadistes qui ont pris en otage leur foi.  Fini la musique et les rires, les cigarettes et même le football...  Les femmes sont devenues des ombres qui tentent de résister avec dignité et des tribunaux improvisés rendent chaque jour leurs sentences absurbes et tragiques.  Kidane et les siens semblent épargnés par le chaos de Tombouctou jusqu'au jour où leur destin bascule...

It's 1941, the war on the Russian front is expanding, and the Germans are less patient than they were last year.  There is real pressure on to expose the French resistance, and the local group plan some assassinations in Villeneuve.  But in the planning, Marcel's new girlfriend is captured, and Marcel is involved in an unplanned murder of a German officer.  Tensions ratchet up.

Hortense is involved in a steamy affair with the local German commander.  Lucienne has become pregnant to a German soldier.  The tensions and the passions in the village are on the rise, and still, the villagers' sense of trust in each other is being challenged by the dreadful occupation.  It's gripping drama all the way.

No wonder the New York Times says:
"It's a subtle, historically accurate but not unsympathetic look at ordinary people suddenly tested by war, defeat and enemy invasion."
