In the house

Now showing

Considered as one of François Ozon's best movies, "In the house" is an excellent thriller where fiction meets reality. 


Suspense, manipulation, voyeurism... this movie has all the ingredients to fascinate and entertain at the same time. 

Synopsis : Sixteen-year-old Claude insinuates himself into the house of fellow high school student Rapha, writing about his family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction for his jaded literature teacher Germain. Intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events.


The cast includes many excellent French actors. Fabrice Luchini (who also played in Potiche) could not be a better choice for Germain, a French literature teacher in his “midteacherlife” crisis.

Kristin Scott-Thomas who plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary art gallery director who avidly follows Claude’s semi-imaginary escapades, and  Emmanuelle Seigner  who plays Rapha’s mom, Claude’s object of desire, are also very good. Ernst Umhauer as Claude was among the nominees for Most promising actor at 2012 Cesar awards and was awarded the prize of "best promising actor" by the International Press …pretty good start! 



International critics praised the film and its French director: "brilliant", "addictive"... And last but not least, Ozon won the Golden Seashell and Prize of the Jury at San Sebastian International Film Festival, as well as the International Critics' Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.


With all these excellent reviews and awards, we bet you are very curious to know what's going on in the house...
