Synopsis by Gönül Dönmez-Colin
The first film directed by the screenwriter who won a César for Ridicule, this film with a strange title carries the same humor as that earlier hit. Sauveur (Savior) needs someone to save him, and so he begins to look for his father, a fast- talking ladies' man. The son becomes attached to his misanthropic father, and soon a crippled woman photographer and a gigolo with a killer smile also enter the scene, and the situation becomes more and more impossible. This character-driven drama draws strength from the performances of Guillaume Canet as Sauveur and Jean Yanne, familiar from Claude Chabrol films, as the father.
