In The House

Directed by François Ozon
Starring Emmanuelle Seigner, Ernst Umhauer, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Fabrice Luchini, Bastien Ughetto
Theatrical Release date April 19, 2013
Run time 105 min

Sixteen-year-old Claude (Ernst Unhauer) insinuates himself into the house of fellow high school student Rapha (Bastien Ughetto), writing about his family in essays that perversely blur the lines between reality and fiction for his jaded literature teacher Germain (Fabrice Luchini). Intrigued by this gifted and unusual student, Germain rediscovers his taste for teaching, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events. Kristin Scott-Thomas plays Germain’s wife, Jeanne, a contemporary art gallery director who avidly follows Claude’s semi-imaginary escapades, while Emmanuelle Seigner plays Rapha’s mom, Claude’s object of desire.\r\n

One of this year’s outstanding films. Francois Ozon’s diabolical comedy is sinfully delicious!

A impressive and handsomely assembled film that’s as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
