Movie propaganda

As part of a job that he is promised, Xavier (Romain Duris), an economics student in his late twenties, signs on to a European exchange program in order to gain working knowledge of the Spanish language. Promising that they'll remain close, he says farewell to his loving girlfriend then heads to Barcelona. Following his arrival, Xavier is soon thrust into a cultural melting pot when he moves into an apartment full of international students. An Italian, an English girl, a boy from Denmark, a young woman from Belgium, a German and a girl from Andalusia all join him in a series of adventures that serve as an initiation to life.
