Self Made Hero

04 Mar 1998

Director: Jacques Audiard



105 min

A comedy about a hero Albert Dehousse (Mathieu Kassovitz) who decides to invent himself a better life and joins the French Resistance nine months after the Allied liberation of Paris. There he assumes the role of someone more adventurous and superior to himself. Little by little he becomes that hero, not because he lies directly but he remains discreetly silent when acts of heroism are ascribed to him.
