Presentation by and discussion with French director Isabelle Doval, actors Charlotte de Turckheim and Mathieu Simonet and producers and co-screenwriters Amélie de Chassey and Pierre Kubel
After the death of the Count, Countess of Montarbie d’Haust must hand down the nobility title and the domain to a man in the family, as aristocratic tradition requires. Nevertheless, she cannot resign herself to hand down the domain to Gonzague, an arrogant and cupid nephew, instead of to her own daughter. Suddenly comes Abdel, a resourceful and clever young man from the projects who has taken refuge in the castle. His meeting with the Countess is going to make sparks! They both come from two different worlds, but still might be able to help each other. . .
Here is a comedy that expresses what all human beings know deep within themselves. People from all cultures can live together. No moats, no gated communities, no fences nor walls needed.
