The Very Private Life of Mister Sim

Synopsis: François Sim considers himself worthless and he may have good reasons for that. Hasn't he lost his job as well as his wife Caroline? Isn't he unable to relate to Lucy, his teenage daughter? Didn't he, when he was eighteen miss out on passion whereas the sexy, gorgeous Luigia opened her arms to him? Hasn't he - he who keeps craving communication - invariably proved a dreadful bore to others...? So, when Sim is unexpectedly offered a job, he takes it, hoping one more time to give a little bit of meaning to his life. Even if his task amounts to driving across France and trying to sell... a "revolutionary biological toothbrush" to reluctant dentists!

- Yes, sure.

Excuse me. Am I wrong, or you are stalking me?

- Ah, no, not particularly...

- No?

- So... What were you doing?

- What I was doing? Well...

I was working for a department store, and I left.

And now, I'm better. I feel like things will get better.

And you? I saw you record stuff... Advertisement?

So... I record sounds in airports so that businessmen

can pretend they are on a business trip to their wives.

I make cheating easy.

I provide alibis.

You don't have problems with that?

No. But Samuel thinks like you.

- Your husband?

- No, My uncle. I like him a lot.

It's for me. I have to go.

- I take the same one.

- Really?

- My name is Poppy.

- Franois Sim. Like the card.

- You know, I'm in a big depression since 6 months.

- Really?

People who are not depressed are a bit stupid anyway, right?

- Do you have someone to talk with?

- Not really.

Well... I have 70 friends on Facebook!


Can I help you? Are you looking for something?

- Could I borrow your mobile phone?

- Of course.

I have to make a call and my battery is empty.

- Can't catch it... Here you go.

- Thank you very much, very kind.

- You can call, I took the code away.

- This is the iPhone 4?

Ah no, no... This is the 5.

- I'm the man you stole the phone from.

- Yes.

I wanted to ask, if people call, can you give my home number?

- especially a young woman called Poppy.

- Yes, yes. Sure.

Well thank you. It's very k...

- Poppy?

- Franois, it's Gabriel. Still at home? Are you free tomorrow?

- Tomorrow, sure...

- I need to talk to you about toothbrushes.

4 salesmen go all around France :
