This is a day in the life of a famous comedian, who is back to his hometown in the North of France to be the guest of a festival. There is probably some autobiography here, since Jackie Berroyer, who wrote the script and plays the main part, became a (modest) celebrity after many years spent as a writer. Frankly, I have trouble reminding what happened in this movie because little happens : though fans gather and cheer, the comedian understands how superficial, though well-meant, it is. His little celebrity, his uninteresting memories of his native town don't matter as much as he thought they would do, and he finds himself a fish out of the water. There was the germ of a strong movie here, but too little happens for it to be exciting. What remains is the general tone of the movie, a melancholy as gray as this town and its weather.
