Nicholas is the eldest son of a wealthy suburban family, whose businesswoman mother makes deals from a helicopter and has an affair with her business partner. His cheerful, alcoholic father, on the other hand, is reduced to a prisoner in his room with his devoted dog and electric train set. Unbeknownst to his parents, Nicholas works as a window cleaner and dish washer in a Parisian cafe. He is also in love with the daughter of another cafe's owner, who, however, has an abusive boyfriend. One night, Nicholas sneaks a few drunken drifters into his family wine cellar and his father unexpectedly takes a liking to the stranger. Written by

This movie is about the many people who do not fit in their life and who look elsewhere to make it better and more thrilling. Alcohol, laziness, petty crime, adultery,... at one time at least they all go adrift from their common existence, leave the "terra firma" on a skiff or a love barge, climb rocks, drink themselves into oblivion...
Interesting theme but instead of thrilling and amusing us out of our daily routine and shabby existences, the movie becomes easily a bore. Quite disappointing to be bored by the story of people who try to escape boredom !
