Fourteen-year-old Hervé (Vincent Lacoste) is an average teen living with his single mother. overwhelmed by his impulses, physically unappealing, and only half-smart. He and his best friend Camel (Anthony Sonigo) forever fantasise about their female classmates but have less luck with girls in reality, until the beautiful Aurore (Alice Trémolières) takes a liking to Hervé…

Acclaimed graphic artist Riad Sattouf directs here his debut feature, an hilarious and touching coming-of-age comedy about an adolescent boy and his efforts to fit in amongst a varied cast of characters.

Les Beaux-gosses won the 2010 César Award for Best First Film.
