Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This episodic French comedy chronicles 10 minutes in the lives of seven people living in the same apartment block. The stories are set in early May at 7:50 p.m., ten minutes before the name of the new president of France is to be announced on television. The episodes are all presented in real time and as they progress, they eventually come together and give the viewer a complete picture of all that is happening in that single building. Within are scenes of a Mideast wedding that disintegrates into a brawl, an unemployed executive who cracks under stress and accidentally shoots his wife, and a pretty nurse who makes bold sexual advances to her biker-neighbor after she goes to borrow a cup of flour.
