Paul-Andre is a shy and introverted 40-something. He's rich but alone, fed up with life, and decides that what he needs is a family. Violette is also in her 40s and full of life, but money troubles mean that she could lose her home and even her family. Paul-Andre offers her a crazy deal - he rents her family in return for paying off her debts. He will finally be able to test out the true joy of family life...for better or worse!
An ideal film for the holidays. The actors are well known on the continent and they are often better than films. It's what British people call a 'feel good movie'. Rich versus poor, a classic cliché but with a lot of humour. Bound to be comic if you show that whether we are rich or poor, we have the same prejudices between social classes. Of course the characters are not like anybody, they are a bit special, let's say original. But that too is what makes the film enjoyable.
