Andre is 80 years old and was once a tap dancer. He lives with his daughter Anne and her husband Antoine. Or was he an engineer whose daughter Anne lives in London with her new lover, Pierre? The thing is, he is still wearing his pyjamas, and he can’t find his watch.
This is a beautiful study of a man descending into dementia and we join him on his journey. It is funny and heart-breaking.
