A sixteen-year-old boy insinuates himself into the house of a fellow student from his literature class and writes about it in essays for his French teacher. Faced with this gifted and unusual pupil, the teacher rediscovers his enthusiasm for his work, but the boy’s intrusion will unleash a series of uncontrollable events.
"The result is endlessly playful, although the rules of the game, in Ozon's hands, could hardly be graver, and what can be at stake, in the act of storytelling, has seldom been more elegantly sketched."
--Anthony Lane, The New Yorker
"Ozon is an artful provocateur and observer of human nature."
--John Anderson, Newsday
"A celebration of storytelling's power."
--Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
