A young boy, Gary, lives with his eccentric parents and an exotic bird in a Parisian apartment — each night, Camille and Georges dance lovingly to their favorite song, Mr. Bojangles. At home, there is only room for fun, fantasy, and friends. But as his mesmerizing and unpredictable mother descends deeper into her own mind, it is up to Gary and his father to keep her safe.

A film by Régis Roinsard

A film of mad tenderness… A magnificent and poetic film adaptation, a declaration of unconditional love.”

Ophélie Daguin, ELLE France

The film’s vision of a life of immeasurable joy and passion — one lived solely for love, without limits or qualifications — is beautiful and, for this critic and helpless romantic, powerfully intoxicating.”

Calum Marsh, The New York Times
