What if the father-in-law of the leader of France’s equivalent to the BNP turned out to be Jewish? That’s what a far-right party leader discovers to her horror as she is being whisked around a ballroom in the arms of an ex-SS officer. So begins a querky comedy caper movie from celebrated French-Israeli director and actor Yvan Attal. The film takes off in unexpected directions, revealing a challenging episodic format structured around Yvan’s own psychotherapy sessions as he explores being Jewish with his long-suffering psychotherapist.
