Film details


Sequel to MAYRIG. Four decades later, Zakar is a successful playwright living in Paris. His parents come to visit for the premiere of his play and, though they would prefer hospitality at their son's home, their daughter-in-law has reserved an opulent hotel suite for them. When his father dies Zakar resolves to do his best for his mother. Eventually, making a dream come true, he buys the best house in the street where they had lived, on first coming to France, in a tiny flea-bitten house.
