To celebrate La Fête de la Bretagne 2021, we are delighted to present this comedy filmed in Brittany, adapted from David Foenkinos' eponymous novel and featuring Camille Cottin (Call My Agent) and Fabrice Luchini.

In a bizarre Breton library that collects rejected, never published manuscripts, a young editor discovers a novel that she considers a masterpiece. It was written by a certain Henri Pick, a cook who died two years earlier and who, according to his widow, had never read a book in his life or written anything but a shopping list... Did he have a secret life? When the book becomes a huge best-seller, Jean- Michel Rouche, a skeptical and stubborn literary critic, teams up with Joséphine, Pick’s daughter, to unravel the mystery. What if this story was only a conspiracy...?
