Ariane Felder is pregnant! This comes as a surprise given that she is a young magistrate, resolutely single with strict moral standards. But what is even more of a shock is that a paternity test reveals the father to be none other than Bob, a criminal wanted by police for a heinous attack he carried out! Ariane, who does not remember anything, therefore tries to understand what could possibly have happened, and what fate awaits her.




director: albert dupontel


Born in 1964, Albert Dupontel is a French actor, director and screenwriter. He came to the fore in the early 90s with Sales histoires for Canal+ and Sale spectacle, where he exhibited his acerbic, unremitting humour. He began his career as a comic actor in film working with filmmakers Paul Vecchiali and Jacques Rivette before going on to work with the likes of Michel Deville, Jacques Audiard, Nicolas Boukhrief, Cédric Klapisch, Gustave Kervern and Bruno Delépine. In 2007, he portrayed a French soldier at the height of the Algerian War of Independence in Florent-Emilio Siri’s Intimate Enemies.

Alongside his comic acting career, he has enjoyed a successful directing career with a number of highly original comedies based around caustic humour: Bernie, The Creator, Locked Out and The Villain.
