Pierre has enjoyed a successful career as a dancer performing in Parisian nightclubs, but when he's diagnosed with a serious heart condition, his doctor warns him that the strain of his work could kill him. Pierre must reinvent his life, and as he ponders his future and his mortality, he turns to his sister Elise, a social worker and single mother, for help. Elise is facing some life changes of her own: she's tired of being alone and she's developed an infatuation with Jean, a grocer who sells his wares in the city's open-air market. But Jean is recently divorced and is still preoccupied with his former wife, Caroline. Pierre also finds himself falling from afar for a lovely college student name Laetitia, but he has a rival for her affections in Roland, one of her professors, who is considerably older than her.

Le temps du loup = Time of the wolf by Michael Haneke( Visual )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and German and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extremely timely and prescient piece of social commentary, Time of the Wolf follows a family's difficult journey immediately after an unknown apocalyptic event. Haneke never tells us what happened, or where, or when, but instead puts us directly into the terrifying aftermath, with all of its confusion, uncertainty, and danger. As all social laws and codes are suddenly overturned, Heneke asks us to find our own way through. Time of the Wolf is Haneke's most intense film, and also his most hopeful."--Container
