Hervé is a shy teenager, whose best friend, Camel, is a heavy metal and porn film fan. They are both obsessed with sex and can’t stop fantasizing about girls (and sometimes, about the girls’ mothers). But when push comes to shove, they are incapable of expressing more than stutters and insults. Hervé somehow catches the attention of one of the most beautiful girls at high school. From that moment on, he has to fight the dictates of his hormones and his lack of experience. To top it off, Camel insistence that he brag about things he hasn’t done, and his mother’s incessant teasing.

He studied at the School of Applied Arts, and then studied animation at the École des Gobelins.

He took part in the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes with Les Beaux Gosses, which is his first feature length film. The film is an adaptation of his own material from comic strips about adolescents published in the weekly paper Charlie-Hebdo.
