Movie Info

An older man and a younger woman find love, with his time in jail the unlikely catalyst, in this witty drama from France. Gregoire (Fabrice Luchini) is a formerly prominent French industrialist whose financial misdealings resulted in a term behind bars, which was especially embarrassing for his brother Louis (Vincent Lindon), a talk show host specializing in hard-hitting investigative interviews. When Gregoire is released from prison, he returns home to the apartment he shared with his wife Agnes (Isabelle Huppert) and their children. But everyone keeps telling Gregoire that he doesn't seem the same; he seems confused, he has a hard time making himself understood, and he freezes up during a television interview conducted after his release. A puzzled Gregoire stops by the beauty parlor where his wife gets her hair done and, to his surprise, he discovers someone he can talk to: Stephanie (Vahina Giocante), one of the hair stylists. Stephanie's boyfriend was in the same jail as Gregoire, and was released the same day, so they have some common conversational ground; Stephanie finds that she likes talking with Gregoire, and in time she finds herself falling for him. Pas de Scandale was shown in competition at the 1999 Venice Film Festival and also at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Pas de scandale (Keep It Quiet)(No Scandal)

"Keep It Quiet" is an engaging, yet discordant, family drama centered around two brothers, Gregoire(Fabrice Luchini) and Louis(Vincent Lindon) Jeancourt. They are both fabulously wealthy and recognizable on the street but that's where the similarities end. Gregoire has just been released from jail and meets his wife Agnes(Isabelle Huppert) in a cafe. Actually, Gregoire has always had something of a saintly persona, which might make it easy for him to be taken advantage of, but also hard for other family members to compete with as they have their own secrets and faults they do not want to share, as in all families. So, they hope Gregoire does not start now on national television. But then there is more than one form of exposure. All that is revealed of Gregoire's crime is that it involved protecting the workers at the family business which he inherited over his brother, forcing Louis to prove himself and become a television personality as a result. So, the attention that Gregoire gets is not due to the crime itself but because of the class he comes from. While he may not be the type of person who usually gets sent to prison, William(Ludovic Bergery) is. He takes off after just being released from prison, abandoning his girlfriend Stephanie(Vahina Giocante). With Stephanie, the movie takes an odd and contrived route, introducing her indepedentally of the brothers in the wake of a one night stand, before encountering Louis in a restaurant and Agnes at the salon where she works.
