At the court of Louis XVI, wit is the ultimate weapon against the mortal enemy of all noblemen: le ridicule. When Grégoire Ponceludon de Malavoy decides to go to Versailles to meet the King to save his farmers from unhealthy marsh, he soon finds out that conspiracy, rivalry and betrayal reign supreme in Versailles.

A classic of contemporary French cinema that won the César for best film and best director in 1997.
