Daddy Cool


2008 | 94 minutes

A dash of magical realism and the ghost of Albert Einstein turn the typically trite tale of the out-of-touch father and his rebellious teenage daughter into over-the-top satirical glory in Francois Desagnat’s Daddy Cool. Daniel Auteuil (nerdy microbiologist) and Juliette Lamboley (faux-rebel hottie) play a clueless father and a 15-years-estranged daughter. Romantical slo-mo scenes, a ludicrous daddy boot camp, and a raging rave in the woods make this film light, funny, and so French.
