Movie Info

A French government minister named Vincent (Severin Blanchet) resigns from his official duties to experience a loose life of drink, women and good times in this satirical comedy from writer/director Otar Losseliani. His provincial mother (Michel Piccoli) watching bemused from the sidelines as her once-respectable son experiences the heretofore unexplored pleasures and pitfalls of the everyman, Vincent soon finds himself mixed up in a curious carnival of guns, exotic wild animals, and, of course, the Luxembourg Gardens. There once was a time when Vincent was defined by his government job and the creature comforts that seemed to go hand-in-hand witch such a powerful position. His hoity-toity status, trophy wife, and luxury apartment may be a thing of the past these days, but thankfully Vincent isn't the type to sit around obsessing about the way things were. Thanks to his rich mother he can even rest easy in the modest Paris apartment complex she has so generously bestowed him. Now, despite the fact that a community of undesirable immigrant squatters has overrun the tenement, the former minister casually settles into his comfortable new existence of visiting with eccentric friends and filling his evenings with wine, women, and good friends. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
