A young woman from the provinces takes on the airs of a typical gay guy in order to pass herself off as her father's son. The point is to enter his world, since she never knew her father, who turns out to be a highly refined and very Parisian homosexual. But will he agree to put up with such a pansy?


"If I were a guy, my dream would be to portray a woman. So in the same way, I thought it would be fun to change myself into a man. But I certainly didn't want to play a virile man with tie and shoulder pads. I wanted to be someone almost asexual. I play a lot with my physique since the character I portray doesn't have anything to say. I forced myself not to do too much. In the film, I'm like a coloring book - you can color me anyway you want. I play a mute, very naive character who passes through the whole film. Everyone can put themselves in his place." (Valérie Lemercier, excerpt from an interview published in Unifrance Film Newsletter No. 19)
