Alternate Titles: Le Mystère Henri Pick
Fabrice Luchini, Camille Cottin
In a strange library in the heart of Brittany, a young editor finds an extraordinary manuscript. She immediately decides to publish it. The novel becomes a bestseller. But the author, Henri Pick, a Breton pizza chef who died two years earlier, “never wrote anything besides a grocery list”, according to his widow.
Suspecting a literary hoax, a famed critic decides to investigate, with the unexpected help of the daughter of the mysterious Henri Pick.
Adapted from the eponymous novel by David Foenkinos (translated all around the world), this entertaining and joyful “whodunit” combines suspense and humor perfectly.
An international success brought to the screen by Rémi Bezançon (The First Day of the Rest of Your Life, A Happy Event).
