For Starters

France, 1993 (MIFF 1995, Fiction)

Director: Marc-Henri Du Fresne, François Morel

Maurice and Lucien live in the same street in the same suburb. One is single, the other a widower. They probably have nothing in common but that they both value frankness and plain speech. A wry comedy about the passionless and the ordinary.
