Movie Details

An aspiring actor grows a beard in order to land a role, and experiences success beyond his wildest dreams in this fantasy comedy from France. Benoit is a bartender who always wanted to be an actor. Lamenting his lack of work to his brother Frank, a successful talent agent, Benoit takes his sibling's suggestion to throw away his razor, and sprout some stubble. The next thing Benoit knows, he's scored a role with a local diner theater ensemble. But when Benoit's fuzzy new face throws a wrench in his plans to purchase a condo with his girlfriend Vicky, their relationship hits the skids. Later, just as Benoit's career really begins to take off, Vicky develops a strange hypersensitivity to her boyfriend's beard. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
