Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

Victor Dargelas is smart but for some reason wasn't accepted at one of France's top universities, so he has taken a scholarship to begun study at a business-management school instead. He is a computer whiz, and his scholarship is based on his ability to straighten out a glitch in the school's computer systems. Meanwhile, the dean of the school has been embezzling from the school at a ferocious rate and plans on pinning the blame on the scholarship boy. Meanwhile, Victor has been making friends with his rich-boy roommate Fran├žois. The two of them get wise to the schemes of the embezzler and concoct a counter-plan themselves: why not conduct a leveraged buy-out of the school and run it themselves? Beloved French actor Jean Poiret's appearance here as the criminal school director was his last before his death in March, 1992, and the film is dedicated to him.
