"In the House" is about and writer and his teacher.

**In the House** is a French movie with English subtitles.
Germain (Fabrice Luchini) is the Language Arts teacher and Claude (Ernst Umhauer) is the gifted student. Claude is given an assignment, write about your best friend. Claude writes about a classmate that he is tutoring in math.

While bored with most student's essays, Germain is intrigued with Claude's story - who concludes each page with "to be continued." Each night Germain reads Claude's essay to his hot wife, Jeanne (Kristin Scott Thomas) who treats the tale as a Harriquin Romance bodice ripper.

**In the House** is a story within a story. Character perception shifts every five minutes. One is not certain if Claude's experiences **In the House** are teen fantasy or potential criminal activity, which raises boundary issues between a teacher and his apt pupil.
