Storyline

Pierre, a sixty-year-old technician on an offshore oil rig, has become a misanthropic loner. He had a wife but she died after a breakdown whose seriousness he had more or less deliberately overlooked. He had a lover, beautiful concert pianist Florence, but he left her without giving her any explanations. Now his only life companion is an alley cat he has adopted. One day he is the victim of a strange accident and finds himself immobilized in a hospital bed. Pierre is horrified but what he does know yet is that this hated hospital room will gradually become the place of his return to life. Written by Guy Bellinger

good value for money
9 January 2016 | by selffamilySee all my reviews

I picked this up in a sale, it was a comedy, said the blurb. Well once you have realised it's not really a comedy, just a mildly amusing drama, you can enjoy it. There are some really nice views of Paris by night in the opening credits, always a pleasure to see. Furthermore, it's a good film, with realistic characters and some excellent acting by young actors too. I liked the way the story unravelled slowly, and the truth came out at the end. It's worth a couple of hours of your time if you enjoy French movies (I do) and will leave you with a sense of well-rounded enjoyment. (I really don't like this ten-line rule for reviews. Sometimes one can say enough briefly).
