Feature Film

A conventional French family lives in apparent harmony... until one day the father brings home a "pet" rat. One by one, as they come into contact with the rat, each character unravels to reveal hidden sexual and psychological perversions. An outrageous farce that shatters the flawless veneer of the bourgeoisie, and humorously challenges the family values of a standard sitcom.
