Agathe is a successful art dealer who lives with her husband François and their son Adrien in a wealthy quarter of Paris. Unfortunately Adrien is an underachiever at his school and Agathe cannot bother François into leaving the flat for parent-teacher conferences. Moreover the family has an abandoned construction site in their flat. The situation gets stirred up when Adrien befriends a classmate who has a rather dubious social background. His friend is raised by a single father named Patrick who has neither a proper home nor tact. Although Agathe is obviously distressed by Patrick's unpolished behaviour, her husband François just hires him to take care of the overdue repairs. François and Patrick even become friends. Then François hits successfully on a woman Patrick had wanted for himself and leaves Agathe. Patrick and Agathe are both left back. Agathe develops empathy for this man who au contraire to her husband is dedicated to do everything necessary to make sure his son can attend a respected school.

Élevé dans un milieu très populaire et violent, incompris tant par un père alcoolique et rustre (Grégory Gadebois) que par une mère dépassée (Catherine Salée), le jeune Marvin Bijoux (Jules Porier) pâtit d'une différence qui le rend marginal et en fait le souffre-douleur de son frère et de ses camarades d'école. Grâce à la principale du collège (Catherine Mouchet), Marvin découvre le théâtre et finit par imposer son choix d'entrer au Conservatoire pour s'adonner à cette passion. Marvin fuit ainsi sa famille et son village des Vosges. En changeant d'identité et en devenant Martin Clément, grâce au théâtre, il va pouvoir s'assumer et s'épanouir. Devenu adulte (Finnegan Oldfield), à Paris, ses rencontres avec un metteur en scène au parcours similaire (Vincent Macaigne), un homosexuel flambeur (Charles Berling) et la grande Isabelle Huppert vont l'aider à façonner son propre destin.

Martin (Fabrice Luchini), an ex-Parisian with a deep appreciation for Gustave Flaubert, has settled in a village in Normandy as a baker. He sees a British couple moving into an old property across the road. Their names, Gemma (Gemma Arterton) and Charles Bovery (Jason Flemyng), echo those of the leading characters in Flaubert's 1856 masterpiece Madame Bovary. Martin engages with the young couple and observes Gemma's behaviour replicates that of her namesake, including a series of romantic and sexual liaisons that suggest she is headed for a tragic finale like that of the novel. He intervenes but cannot alter the inevitable conclusion.
