Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Nicolas Cuche's supernatural comedy Jojo La Frite (Accidental Saint) stars Didier Becchetti and Frederic Saurel as a pair of small-time con artists. Ralph (Becchetti) and Swan (Saurel) barely survive by committing petty thefts and scams. At Christmastime Swan stops a mugger from getting away with a woman's purse. Suddenly a halo appears above Swan's head. He is now an angel. This gives his partner Ralph fits as Swan is no longer able to engage in immoral activities. When Swan performs a miracle, crime boss Benz (Jean-Christophe Bouvet) becomes interested in exploiting them for profit. Accidental Saint was screened at the Avignon Film Festival.
