Pascal Chaumeil's feature film directorial debut after a lot of TV work and over a hundred commercials on his belt.

Screenwriter Laurent Zeitoun got the idea of the film from something that happened in his family, when one of his cousins was in love with someone who didn't treat her well and he told his uncle that they should hire an actor skilled in improvisation to split up the couple.
