Muriel moves from a small village to the big city of Brussels, hoping to start an independent life working as a museum guide. She rents a room from Laura, who has a room to spare now that her mother is in hospital. Laura is a vital and candid woman who has a child-wish but leads a very chaotic life. Meanwhile, Muriel's mother has a hard time accepting that her daughter leads a life of her own now, and she also faces some changes at the factory where she works. The movie follows the interconnected lifes of these three women of three different generations, who all face different problems.Written by

A very touching movie, just real life as it is sometimes.
The story of Muriel, a young girl who leaves her parents, moves to Brussels to live alone and work for her own money, and the people around her: Laura who gives her a room for rent, her mother Martha who wants her youth back after 35 years of marriage, Oscar the ex of Laura...
There's not much story... It's more like a piece taken out of reality, stylized and put into film.There's no good or bad in the movie, every character has problems, makes mistakes and self-reflects on his/her thoughts and actions, without doing anything better next time.
To some this might sound really boring, but life is boring for most and people don't learn from their mistakes in reality as well. It's a movie best seen on your own, to be left alone with your feelings.
