Written by Mikaël Buch and Maud Ameline (who was nominated for the César for Best Original Screenplay in 2013 for Camille Rewinds [+see also:

), the screenplay centres around Simon Weiser, who will soon become a father. But how will this young man, whimsical and wounded, be able to take care of a child when he can’t even take care of himself? When he meets Théodore, a badass teenager who never knew his father, Simon starts questioning his impending fatherhood. Over the course of one night, these two troublemakers embark on an existential journey, which proves to be both comical and moving. 

Produced by Géraldine Michelot for Mona Films, Simon et Théodore has been pre-purchased by Ciné+ and received support in the form of an advance on receipts from the CNC, Ciclic (Centre-Loire Valley region) and the La banque postale Image 10 Sofica. The six weeks of filming are scheduled to take place between 13 February and 24 March in Orléans, Bourges and Paris. Distribution in France will be handled by Rezo Films, whilst international sales will be taken care of by Be For Films

Before going solo and setting up Mona Films, Géraldine Michelot worked at Les Films Pelléas, where she most notably produced Mikaël Buch’s debut feature, along with Versailles [+see also:
