Set in the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this uncharacteristic satire with elements of slapstick, adapted from a popular graphic novel, is a breathless comedy charting the rough and tumble education of a young diplomat (Raphael Përsonnaz) at the hands of his knowing teammate Niels Arestrup and his boss Thierry Lhermitte, whose ego and energy beggar belief.

In French with English subtitles
