A simple but deep story which borders the comic and the tragic as 3 characters from 3 completely different generations are faced with family challenges they cannot solve alone. Constance (Noémie Schmidt) has problems with her nerves when attending exams and struggles to know what she wants to do in life. She is now making the big jump from school to university, and moving to Paris. Henri Voizot (Claude Brasseur) is offering a room to let in his nice old style French apartment but his misanthropic, grumpy ways are not easy to handle and finds his match in Constance. The old man ultimately seeks her help to interfere in his son's marriage before he makes a big mistake. Will Constance lower to such ignoble task to keep her room and also her student career? A great Claude Brasseur as the grumpy old man and a promising Noémie Schmidt make us accomplices as we watch their events unfold in this theatrical play made into a film for us to enjoy.
