Le Franc

Quinzaine 1999 | Feature film | 45 minutes

Marigo the musician dreams of his instrument which his landlady has impounded because of his chronic rent non-payments. Getting hold of a lottery ticket, he decides to put it in a safe place while awaiting the drawing : he glues it to the back of his door and covers it with the poster of his childhood hero. The night of the drawing, a fortune blinds Marigo. But the problem is that he has glued his winning ticket to his door… Le franc is the first part of the series Histoires de petites gens (Tales of Little people).
