A Self-Made Hero

Drama, Comedy 1h 47m 1996

AroView: Mattieu Kassovitz (director of LA HAINE) proves to be no slouch actor here as a WW2 idler who swats up and cheekily ascends the ranks of the post-war military elite by passing himself off as a Resistance hero. This early feature from acclaimed director Jacques Audiard is a serio-comic treat.

“This is a confident, playful film that skewers both the amorality of the central character and, less comfortably, the gullibility of the people he so easily dupes.” ~John Hartl, The Seattle Times
