Franck Bellucci is a professor, author and playwright. Among his novels: "Ce silence-là", "Entre deux, l’ordre des choses", "Un père qui pleure" and "Ton frère, ce clandestin".
Bernard Pinel is a mediocre man who gets bogged down in his regulated and monotonous life.
He is satisfied with this existence without flavor or relief until the day he unexpectedly meets Aurélie, the new cashier at his favourite supermarket, who is going to rush his certainties and question his relationship to the world, to others, to himself and propel him into a tragicomedy of which he will not be able to control all the outcomes...
The inability to be happy, the difficult relationship with others and the world, the confinement in a daily routine or solitude.... Franck Bellucci evokes these serious and sometimes distressing subjects through a light, offbeat and infinitely romantic story.
He also pays a vibrating tribute to the books and the mysterious impact they can sometimes have on our lives.
