We invite you to discover the French comedy Adieu les cons (87 min), directed by Albert Dupontel and which won seven César awards in 2021.

Synopsis: “When Suze Trappet learns at the age of 43 that she is seriously ill, she decides to go in search of the child she was forced to abandon when she was 15. Her administrative research brings her to cross path with JB, a fifty-year-old burnt-out man, and M. Blin, a blind archivist of impressive enthusiasm. The three of them embark on a quest, as spectacular that improbable”.
