Distrib Films US • 1h 38m
Directed by Ivan Calbérac • Drama • With Claude Brasseur, Guillaume de Tonquédec, Noémie Schmidt, Frédérique Bel • 2015 • 98 minutes
Veteran star Claude Brasseur plays the cantankerous Henri of the title in this riotous comedy of bad manners and good intentions. Bitterly opposed to the relationship between his son Paul (television comic Guillaume de Tonquédec) and the flighty Valérie (Frédérique Bel), Henri strikes upon a devious plan. He offers free board to attractive student Constance (vivacious newcomer Noémie Schmidt), who, desperate to make her own way, agrees to use her charms to drive the couple apart.
