Best comedy about puberty I have ever seen

This is the best comedy about puberty and adolescence and I wonder why it has not been regarded as a cult movie yet. Based on his own comic director Gerard Lauzier presents us a 16 year old brat who couldn´t be more arrogant towards his loving mother and father. Helpless and constantly hurt by his intolerable hatred, they rent him a room upstairs where he drives himself more and more into a teenage depression, which he finally wants to cure in the hippie family of his school mate. This is a detailed portrait of teenage psychology in a stadium of life, where one claims his superiority to his parents and anybody else, but where one doesn´t really know that one´s anger is derived from sexual frustration and irritation. All these little details about adolescence make this film incredibly funny. I always recommend it to friends and they are very grateful. But the film doesn´t seem to be very much known (outside France), maybe because there isn´t any other film of note from the director.
