A ex-dancer has a heart problem and even with a transplant, he may still only have a few months to live. Time's spent looking at people/life in Paris from his balcony. His single mom sister moves in with her 3 kids to look after him.
Moved by the plight of the mother of her daughter's school friend, a young judge facing an incurable disease teams up with an older colleague in order to fight against financial companies that exploit the poor.
This project almost didn't get off the ground artistically because it is loaded with so many inconsistencies and improbabilities. When the parents of 19-year-old Lili walk around like zombies, evade all attempts by the girl to learn her brother's whereabouts and generally bring the story to a halt, it's up to Melanie Laurent to inject as much life as she can into the plot. That she is so successful is a tribute to her great talent and charisma as a performer. The hospital scenes must have been especially difficult for her, but they work very well. I must say she looks very convincing as an anorexic. Aissa Maiga as Lili's friend and Julien Boisselier as her boyfriend also provide strong support (but Boisselier seems a bit too old for the part).
Philippe Lioret on the basis of the three films of his I have seen, seems to be a capable but hardly inspired director. He relies a lot on the actors to drive his pictures.
