Smart Ass Cert. 18 Picture house at FACT

  • CastThomas Blumenthal, Alice Isaaz, Jean-Baptiste Lafarge

Fusing the brutally funny campus satire of THE SOCIAL NETWORK with the raunchy desperation of THE RULES OF ATTRACTION, young French director Chapiron (SHEITAN, DOG POUND) delivers this disturbingly contemporary film.

SMART ASS dissects the power plays and factions at an ultra-elite French university, and in doing so lays bare the mores of the French Generation Y.

It follows a trio of super-bright, super-cynical business students, who apply the ruthless capitalist logic of supply and demand that they learn in class by day to the college prostitution ring they run by night.

Darkly humorous, stylish and slick, the film is buoyed along by mad energy, a game young cast and a pulsating soundtrack, while some oddly tender scenes and lyrical camerawork offset the deliciously disreputable goings-on.
