Un Héros très discret

Film, Comedy

Time Out says

Audiard's marvellous follow-up to his impressive Regarde les hommes tomber is a deliciously inventive comedy about a shy, cowardly, none-too-bright nobody (Kassovitz, director of La Haine) who through a mixture of luck, determination and downright lies manages to pass himself off as a WWII Resistance hero. It may be seen as a sly satire on France's illusions about its own wartime record, but more importantly it's a dazzlingly written, consistently funny, and finally very moving tale about identity, fame, storytelling and the way heroic acts often occur on the most intimate plane.
