Mr. Stein Goes Online
Directed by Stéphane Robelin • With Pierre Richard, Yaniss Lespert, Fanny Valette • Produced by Ici & Là Productions • (c) DR
Pierre, a 75 year old widower, has lived as a pretty solitary life since his wife’s passing. His daughter gets him a computer, hoping it will stimulate his curiosity and maybe – who knows? – meet new people. With the help of Alex, a young computer teacher, Pierre begins browsing and surfing, and soon stumbles upon an online dating website.
Under Alex’s identity, Pierre meets Flora63, a young physiotherapist and rapidly falls under her spell. She in turn is charmed by this elegant yet rather unusual profile and asks him on a date. A real one, face to face.
Feeling trapped and excited by this adventure, Pierre accepts and has no other choice but to convince Alex to go in his place.
