A 16 year-old boy (Ernst Umhauer) ingratiates himself into the house of a fellow student from his literature class and writes about it in essays for his French teacher (Fabrice Luchini - Potiche, Cycling with Moliere). Faced with this gifted and unusual pupil, the teacher rediscovers his enthusiasm for his work, but the boy’s intrusion sparks a series of uncontrollable events.
In the House / Dans la maison comes from acclaimed French director François Ozon (Potiche, Swimming Pool, Time to Leave) and stars Kristin Scott-Thomas (The English Patient, Nowhere Boy, Bel Ami) and Fabrice Luchini (Potiche, Paris). Inspired by Juan Mayorga’s play The Boy In The Last Row, and winner of Awards in Toronto and San Sebastián.
Our own Timothy E. RAW had this to say of the film: "A commentary on how and why we tell stories, and who we tell them for, in Ozon's strangely dextrous and dense career, this is top tier stuff. Undoubtedly his best film yet."
