Monsieur (Dominique Gould) has been cheerfully living at the family residence of his girlfriend, whose parents inexplicably accept this arrangement. Nonetheless, when his girlfriend brings a new boyfriend home to live with her, he goes out and gets an apartment. The apartment house is managed by a strange bullying character, who has Monsieur do his typing for him on weekends, while an assortment of odd characters parade in and out of his apartment. Monsieur accepts all this passively, but with good grace, and by the end of the film it looks as though something good will come of it all. This odd, black and white film is the second feature by novelist-director Jean-Philippe Toussaint.
