Romain Duris (Arsene Lupin, The Beat That My Heart Skipped) plays Pierre, a professional dance who’s suddenly diagnosed with a serious heart disease that could cost him his life. While waiting to receive the news as the wheatear or not his is able to receive a heart transplant, Pierre can do nothing but pass the time sitting on the balcony of his apartment and watch the world go by without him. But the more he observes, the more he realises the subtle and sublime beauty hidden beneath the depths of everyday occurrences, as the real Paris slowly begins to reveal itself and the complex tapestry of its inhabitants.
As French as frog's legs. Deep and meaningful without being pretentious. Full of love and humour without being overly sentimental or twee. If you like films that make you think (a bit) and smile...then you need to watch this. C'est magnifique!
