Abstract:

Camille is doing her best to disappear. She barely eats, works at night as a cleaner, and lives in a tinyattic room. Philibert Marquet de La Durbelliere is a stammering, erudite aristocrat who sells postcards outside a museum. One evening, he overcomes his own execruciating reticence to rescue Camille, unconscious, from her freezing garret, and install her in the large, ornate apartment he is taking care of downstairs. He already has an unlikely flatmate--the foulmouthed, talented young chef Franck, who is made more obnoxious by guilt about his beloved grandmother--who in turn forms an unlikely bond with hes new friends. Apart, they may be hopeless, but together, this curious, damaged little quartet may be able to face the world.
