Plot & Details
A woman looking for peace, quiet and family bonding is thrown into the middle of a police investigation in this comedy-drama from director Didier Le Pecheur. Claire (Judith Godreche) is a successful television actress whose busy schedule is getting the better of her, and when she discovers her boyfriend (Nicolas Gob) has been sleeping with another woman, she decides to take a few days off and visit her father in the small town where she grew up. Claire's mother died when she was young, and her father Albert (Daniel Prevost) raised her with the help of his close friend Gedeon (Patrick Chesnais), but when she arrives Albert and Gedeon are locked in a bitter argument, and Gedeon is threatening to never speak to Albert again. Not long after Claire settles in, the proprietor of the local camera shop dies under mysterious circumstances; the local police suspect foul play, and detective Joubert (Alexandre Astier) is brought in to investigate, with a hapless local cop (Raphael Lenglet) assigned to help. While going through the late shopkeeper's effects, Joubert discovers some old snapshots of Claire's mother, and before long the actress and her father are drawn into the investigation as events of thirty years before have a sudden relevance to Albert's falling out with Gedeon.
