Description: Krimo schemes his way into acting in a play in order to get closer to Lydia, the divaesque lead actress, whom he loves. This is not your typical high-school comedy, however, but a reality-based romance set in the housing complexes that ring Paris. The inhabitants are mostly disadvantaged North Africans and the play is an 18th-century comedy whose language is as far from French slang as Shakespeare is from rap.
