Les Stars : Daniel Prévost & Jacques Balutin
Niels is overjoyed when he hears about the black hole that will drastically reduce his prison sentence. He’s been chosen for his talents as a mechanic to take part in a special mission: escorting a band of eccentric scientists in a spaceship to a black hole that is fifty light years away from Earth. The deal seems more than correct to him as the mission will only take six weeks for them to see Earth again. There’s only one small annoying detail. Those six weeks in hyperspace represent some hundred years on Earth. And that is if everything will go as planned.
Harold Chasen is a young man of 19 years with an overflowing and morbid imagination, who takes advantage of his free time to attend funerals, and stage suicides to react to his mother, Mrs. Chasen, a strict, tyrannical woman and a a bit hysterical, who takes care of finding a wife for his son. But when Harold meets Maude, "80 year old princess", nonconformist and full of life, everything changes for the young man. The old woman teaches him to love life through more wacky experiences than each other, and Harold falls in love with it.
Clément, the only son of a mother who has been divorced for almost as long as his age, is a smart but also very curious nine-year-old boy. When he's not at school, never losing his camera, he tirelessly crisscrosses the old streets of his small town. In this small neighborhood where everyone knows each other, his favorite pastime is to observe the different grown-ups, photographing them on the spot when he is with them. Sometimes in secret to try to understand the way adults live and behave, and through these meetings to discover the secrets of adulthood and the secrets of happiness. He does not want to grow up but he is very much in love with his friend Astrid, a reciprocal feeling and the two live a deep tenderness for each other, to the point of having already promised each other for each other. As Christmas approaches, Clement's curiosity will drag him into a dirty police affair because of a murder. Then a second murder happens, then a third...
