"Annabelle (Caroline Cellier) is a reporter who must to go overseas for an assignment. Unable to take her dog, Didier, with her, she leaves him in the care of friend Costa (Jean-Pierre Bacri). Costa is a soccer coach whose team is suffering from a severe losing streak. His career depends on their next match, but suddenly his star player is injured. His girlfriend has left him and on top of everything, he now has to take care of the petulant, sulky Didier.
Magically, fate shines on Costa when a mysterious beam of light transforms Didier into a man. As a man, Didier (Alain Chabat) may still think like a dog, but he is an astounding soccer player.
First time director Alain Chabat has created a thoroughly enjoyable film with Didier, winner of Best First Film at the 1998 César Awards.
