Synopsis by Mark Deming
A lawyer finds himself playing on so many sides at once that he has trouble keeping score in this offbeat comedy. Alain (Pascal Greggory) is a bisexual attorney stuck in a deep well of sexual and professional confusion. Alain has become involved with Laurence (Nathalie Richard), another lawyer who shares his office; after they sleep together for the first time, Laurence finds herself pregnant, then wants Alain to marry her, even though she knows he doesn't love her. Meanwhile, Alain is obsessed with one of his clients, Marc (Vincent Martinez), who has just been handed a life sentence for murder but is still the man of his dreams, despite the fact that Christophe (Cyrille Thouvenin), Laurence's brother, is in love with Alain and willing to do anything to satisfy his sexual appetite. In order to get closer to Marc, Alain warily agrees to become an intermediary between Marc and his girlfriend Babette (Julie Gayet). But as he begins passing messages between the two, Alain finds himself falling into an affair with Babette.
