Everybody was taken by surprise because it was the first time that simple security cameras of a hotel caught secret agents red-handed, what's more Israeli agents. But without doubt, the most surprised of all were the Mossad leaders who were the only ones to know for sure that the 3 men and the woman, whose faces were in all the newsrooms of the world, had nothing to do with them. From then on, a race against time is undertaken hoping to understand why everything is aiming at them. As the protocol requires it, the boss of the Mossad along with his main assistants, from a liaison officer of the police to a representative of the prime minister, starts investigating. In no time, the "4" of Dubai are identified but it only blurs the situation a bit more since they are simple little French goons from Tel-Aviv: Daniel, a little crook raging in the art world, Eric, the "Miss" of Tel-Aviv, "Facebook" the hacker and Einav, the pretty student. How did they end up in Dubai? How did they mount such an operation? For whom do they really work? As the investigation progresses rapidly and the impostors are caught by the Mossad, the investigators understand little by little that the group has a well-hidden agenda and that they are playing a highly risked double-game which involves French, Russian and Iranian diplomats. The outcome as far bigger than it seems and discover too late that in a universe where everything is but illusion, even the masters of the discipline can sometimes be made fools of thems.

The New War of the Buttons (Int.)
by Christophe Barratier
ComedyReleased September 21, 2011 in France
Synopsis : While the planet is shaken by the terrible events of World War II, another war is been played out in a remote corner of the French countryside. The children of neighbouring villages Longeverne and Velran have always hated each other. Now their battle takes a new turn: prisoners will have the buttons of their clothes removed and return home almost naked, vanquished, humiliated. The ‘War of the Buttons’ has been declared and whichever village collects the most buttons will be declared the victor.
Our story folows Lebrac , a tough, troubled but big-hearted 13-year-old and Longeverne’s‘chief strategist’ and his lieutenants: Top Hat, The Cove and their mascot, Little Hat, an irrepressible 8-year-old who takes part with a hilarious seriousness.
The arrival of Violette, a young girl from the city, sets hearts racing, most of all that of Lebrac, and romance follows quickly. But Violette’s appearance raises suspicions: she is of Jewish origins and has taken refuge with her alleged aunt, the beautiful Simone, with whom the village teacher is secretly in love. Will Violette’s background be discovered? Will she be denounced?
“The War of the Buttons” tells its story with great tenderness and warmth, but with all the excitement and action of a war movie, set against the rich dramatic background of German-occupied France in 1944.

DramaReleased November 03, 2013 in France
Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for the lead role in his new play, writer-director Thomas complains on the phone about the poor caliber of talent he has seen. No actress has what it takes to play his lead female character – a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave. Thomas is about to leave the theater when actress Vanda bursts in, a whirlwind of erratic – and, it turns out, erotic – energy.
At first she seems to embody everything Thomas has been lamenting. She is pushy, foul-mouthed, desperate and ill-prepared – or so it seems. But when Thomas finally, reluctantly, agrees to let her try out for the part, he is stunned and captivated by her transformation. Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character’s name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively – down to buying props, reading source materials and learning every line by heart. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended “audition” builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession…

Le Syndrome du Titanic (Fr.)
by Nicolas Hulot et Jean-Albert Lièvre
DocumentaryReleased October 07, 2009 in France
«I was not an environmentalist when I began to travel around the world 30 years ago. I saw the planet shrink before my eyes, and I went from being carefree and believing that we live in an infinite and unchanging world to realizing that the world is finite and vulnerable. During the past 20 years, I have been fighting to make others conscious of the environmental perils but especially to mobilize others to act. Cinema is the perfect medium, both in France and abroad, to discover these threats and share my feelings on the subject : that everyone sees the Earth and Humanity as they are and as I saw them ; that Man find his own place in time and space. This film is a wake-up call: let us not allow any more time to go by without change. It is also a window of hope: let us seize the occasion to find ourselves again, mobilize human intelligence, giving meaning once more to the idea of progress.»

Every time worn excuse is proffered; every trick in the book is played. The quest to get laid is on. Witty and moving, honest and cynical, cowardly and candid, touching and contemptible - they're guys, in other words. Hope beats eternal in the lusting male heart, but the road to illicit pleasure is never an easy one...
