Summary, etc.:
Adapted a best-selling French novel, 99 FRANCS is a perceptive and pointed satire of the advertising world set in 2001 Paris, following the life of Octave Parango (Jean Dujardin), a flamboyant ad designer, filled with success, satire, misery and love.. Jocelyn Quivrin won Most Promising New Actor at the Lumiere Awards for his work in this film.. "Scathing satire... pulls few punches in his portrayal of advertising agencies as dens of narcissistic, coke-fueled opportunists on the make. Constantly inventive... the pace is fast and furious." - Hollywood Reporter. "A massive dose of pleasingly hallucinatory visuals... zesty, near-irresistible... a stylish roller coaster that deploys the kinetic vocabulary of cinema and advertising to denounce the hollow center of consumer society." - Variety
