Albert Delhousse (Kassovitz) is a young Frenchman who manages to avoid military service in WWII. His one great talent is his confidence and his ability as a salesman. So, with some help from a true freedom fighter known as the Captain (Dupontel), he sells himself as a hero of the Resistance in 1945 Paris and manages to do so very effectively for the rest of his life. Kassovitz does an excellent job as the assured imposter. Based on the novel by Jean-Francoise Deniau; French with subtitles.
