    Plot Outline:

    A young, extroverted left-wing activist who sleeps with her political opponents to convert them to her cause is successful until she meets her match.

    Plot: Bahia Benmahmoud, a free-spirited young woman, has a particular way of seeing political engagement, as she doesn't hesitate to sleep with those who don't agree with her to convert them to her cause – which is a lot of people, as all right-leaning people are concerned. Generally, it works pretty well. Until the day she meets Arthur Martin, a discreet forty-something who doesn't like taking risks. She imagines that with a name like that, he's got to be slightly fascist. But names are deceitful and appearances deceiving…

    Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
    Anachronisms: When Bahia's mother is characterized by her likes and dislikes, she can be seen as a hippie in the 70s, and it is mentioned that she hates films of the 70s starring Alain Delon with the word “flic” (cop) in them. Then a poster of the film Pour la peau d'un flic (1981) is briefly shown. Yet, that film only opened in 1981.

    Trivia: There are 1 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The role of Bahia was initially written as a typically Arabic Marilyn Monroe type, and as such Michel Leclerc and Baya Kasmi were looking for an actress of North African origins. However they were so struck when they met Sara Forestier that they rewrote the part with her in mind.
