I am not an easy man

Vincent Elbaz lives as he pleases. He seduces women, does not hesitate to fall in love with several at the same time. A true macho. But here he is, waking up in a world completely turned upside down. From one day to the next, he is transported to a world ruled by women. He decides to assert his masculinity against a woman who considers him a vase, or at best a potential sex object. A funny comedy that takes a look at machismo and feminism.

Depression and buddies

This is the story of a group of friends who have known each other forever. One day, one of them, Frank, has a breakdown. His friends are of course there to support him and help him through this moment. But they too undergo an existential crisis that makes them question themselves. The film takes the viewer from twist to twist while not neglecting the seriousness of the depression.

The ascent

The film is inspired by real facts without specifying which. In any case, Ahmed Sylla is a young French-Senegalese man who decides to climb Everest. The challenge is not for everyone. And if he embarks on it, it is only to impress the one he loves. His challenge turns into a media phenomenon, something he had not quite imagined at first, coming from a very modest background.
