Good evening

Bonsoir

a film by :Jean-Pierre Mocky

Alex is chief tailor in a shop on one of Paris' grand boulevards. A year ago he was sacked. So his wife left him and he had to leave his flat and find an interim job as a guide in the Parisian sewers. Thanks to the caretaker of the block, who is fond of him, he was kept as his only home the refuse quarter in the basement. That's where he keeps all his gear. To alleviate his solitude and his housing problem, Alex has got into the habit of choosing, each night, any Parisian flat that his fancy and gatecrashing for the night. He is nearly always successful. For some time he has been shadowed every evening and complaints of burglary in the flats visited by Alex are accumulating at the police station.

French Synopsis :

Alex, chef tailleur dans un magasin des grands boulevards à Paris, a été licencié il y a un an. Conséquence, sa femme est partie, il a dû quitter son appartement et a trouvé un emploi intérimaire de guide dans les égouts de Paris. Pour tout domicile, il a conservé un local poubelle dans son immeuble grâce à la complicité de la concierge qui l'aime bien. Là est entassé tout son nécessaire. Alex a pris l'habitude, pour pallier à sa solitude et à son problème de logement, de choisir chaque soir un appartement dans Paris, au gré de ses goûts et de s'y faire inviter pour la nuit. Il y parvient presque toujours. Depuis quelque temps, une ombre le suit chaque soir et des plaintes pour cambriolage dans les appartements visités par Alex affluent au commissariat.
