Who's Henri Pick? Many would say he's the author of an outstanding novel: the last hours of a love story, discovered by chance in a peculiar library in the heart of Brittany, which collects books that have been rejected by publishers, and quickly became a best-seller. But Henri Pick is actually - indeed, was - an ordinary pizza maker - and the widow swears she's never seen him write anything more than the shopping list. Suspecting a setup case, the literary critic Jean Michel Rouche (Fabrice Luchini), accompanied by Henri's daughter, starts investigating. From the homonymous novel by David Foenkinos, a brilliant, surprising comedy. A whodunit without a corpse in which the real question is: who  wrote the novel of the century?
