Is There a Frenchman in the House?

Is There a Frenchman in the House?

A Feature film by Jean-Pierre Mocky

Produced by Uranus Productions France (UPF), Marianne Productions, Belstar Productions

Release in France : 28/04/1982


    Based on a novel by Frederic Dard who also co-scripted with director Jean-Pierre Mocky, this satire on French politics is centered around an official whose earlier rise to power had some sordid aspects that are about to be uncovered by the death of his uncle. While he is trying to contain any potential scandal, the man becomes enamored of the daughter of his uncle's maid. This new romance inspires him to forget worries about a public image and focus on a new life -- not any easy objective when unsavory friends and foes have their own agendas in mind.
