Synopsis by Nathan Southern

With this high-concept, all-star French comedy (it features at least sixteen Gallic marquee names including Michel Blanc and Josiane Balasko), director Jean-Michel Ribes sets out to skewer the pretentiousness of the European art world. It's just a typical, ordinary day at a French art museum, but the cast of characters on display here finds the terrain anything but easy to navigate; they include a mother who literally becomes an art exhibit when her body is coated in plastic and put on display, a minister shocked to his core by artistic displays of sexual organs, a curator suffering from acute botanophobia, a stowaway who hides out in the principal art room, and many other idiosyncratic misfits.
