"Virtuoso clarinettist Simon Eskénazy is trying to finish his record. He is also resisting his sick mother s pleas to be installed in his apartment, while coming to terms with the reappearance of ex-wife Rosalie and their ten-year-old son; then there are his musicians, his insistent agent, Arlette, and his current lover, Raphaël. And then there is Naïm. By night he is Rose, waitress at the Paradise cabaret. Fragile yet violent, loving, funny, elusive and provocative, he is the artist of his own life; in a heartbeat, he can transform himself into a femme fatale. Simon, an Ashkenazi Jew, and Naïm, a Muslim, are worlds apart. But this film is both a love story and a dizzying comedy, in which Simon is forced to let go of all his preconceived ideas and fears."--Container.
