Serge Pilardosse vient d’avoir 60 ans. Il travaille depuis l’âge de 16 ans, jamais au chômage, jamais malade. Mais l’heure de la retraite a sonné, et c’est la désillusion : il lui manque des points, certains employeurs ayant oublié de le déclarer ! Poussé par Catherine, sa femme, il enfourche sa vieille moto des années 70, une ” Mammut ” qui lui vaut son surnom, et part à la recherche de ses bulletins de salaires. Durant son périple, il retrouve son passé et sa quête de documents administratifs devient bientôt accessoire…

Mademoiselle Chambon

Véronique Chambon (Sandrine Kiberlain), a single schoolteacher and Jean (Vincent Lindon), discover an unexpected bond that causes them to question the direction of their lives. They move in different social circles but their relationship develops and their lives begin gradually to unravel.


Roman Faubert is a germ-obsessed hyper-hypochondriac whose medical bills could probably fund a small country. On top of that, he has what might be the worst possible job for someone with his condition: photographing case studies for an online medical encyclopedia. If Romain ever had many friends they long ago lost patience with his obsessive self-medicating and fussing over diseases no one has ever heard of. Only Dr. Zvenska has stayed by his side, mostly out of sheer exhaustion. Zvenska, desperate to rid himself of this most pesky patient, diagnoses Romain with a chronic case of acute loneliness, and promises to help him find a soulmate through online dating. Of course, Romain sets his sights on someone a little closer to home, and completely out of his league. [Synopsis courtesy of COLCOA]

However, it appears to be an unreachable dream given his meager, irregular salary that is not anywhere near enough to supply what he needs to realize his ambition. But he can still dream and talk about it with his family in particular. A family that gradually gives its support to this project, which comes to symbolize the means to a better life. Thanks to its ingeniousness and hard work, this dream soon becomes a reality…or almost…
