A professional conman passes himself off as the boss of a construction site building a highway extension. He cons the whole region, until he meets the lady mayor of a village that the road will go through. She intrigues and unsettles him, before revealing to him a world he never knew: feelings.

Loved it. Emmanuelle Devos earned a César award and the movie earned nine (!) other nominations. François Cluzet, exceptional as usual, plays a kind of French Fitzcarraldo building a freeway in nowhere land. Highly recommended.
