Mon père, ce héros (1991)

Directed by Gérard Lauzier

Certificate PG

Running time 98 minutes approx

André, divorced and newly abandoned by his girlfriend, takes his 14 year-old daughter Véro (short for Véronique) on holiday to Mauritius.  He is soon made aware that she is no longer a little girl and refuses to be treated as such.  While he frets about the attention she attracts from various men, she is busy inventing ever-more outrageous lies to make herself seem more interesting.  Although demanding to be treated as an adult, she weaves a web of confusion from which he has to help her escape.  Will the father-daughter relationship survive the holiday intact?  With Gérard Dépardieu (André) and Marie Gillain (Véronique).
