The Dinner Game

The Dinner Game

Available on iTunes
Wealthy publisher Pierre Brochant (Thierry Lhermitte), faces his greatest social challenge in this classic French comedy of errors. He is supposed to find a "guest" (who must be an idiot), to bring to a dinner sponsored by his friends,who are wealthy and obnoxious yuppies engaged in a never ending game of oneupmanship. He is sure to win the prize when he invites Francois Pignon (Jacques Villeret), a lowly finance ministry accountant who reproduces famous monuments, with matchsticks. Little does Pierre realise that Francois is a giant among idiots who will have systematically destroyed half his life - quite innocently - before entrees even reach the table...
