How do I make PythonTex accepts french accent? [closed]

I have some strings to print using PythonTex.

With strings in english, no problem. E.g., I can use string like "a string of char printed using python" and it works

\pyc{print("a string of char printed using python")}

However, when I want to print french text with accents such as "une chaîne de caractères imprimée en utilisant python" it doesn't work at all!

\pyc{print("une chaîne de caractères imprimée en utilisant python")}

So, how I do that? This work :

\pyc{print(r"une cha\^ine de caract\eres imprim\'ee en utilisant python")}

but is not very friendly!

Thanks you in advance if someone knows how to do and help me.

Here is a MWE to see the problem:

% !TeX encoding = UTF-8
\documentclass[11pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{pythontex}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english, frenchb]{babel}

\begin{document}

With english, no problem, I can use string
like \verb|"a string of char printed using python"|:

\pyc{print("a string of char printed using python")}

However, I want to print french text with accents
such as \verb|"une chaîne de caractères imprimée en utilisant python"|
but this doesn't work and blocks like that raises an error:

\pyc{print("une chaîne de caractères imprimée en utilisant python")}

How I do that?

This work :
\pyc{print(r"une cha\^ine de caract\eres imprim\'ee en utilisant python")}
but is not very friendly!

\end{document}

• Sorry, I am stupid! This is a python problem. Just need to use : \pyc{print(u"une chaîne de caractères imprimée en utilisant python")} with the "u" – Christian Fernandez Aug 17 '16 at 14:23
