    • Synopsis
    • Professional killer Ralf Milan (Richard Berry) checks into a hotel in Nice with a mission: he must eliminate
      the key witness in a major corruption trial as he enters the law courts across the street. But Milan hasn’t counted on François Pignon (Patrick Timsit), the neurotic loser who has just rented the room next door. His wife has left him for another man and life is suddenly not worth living. He decides to hang himself in the bathroom. Yet, Pignon is as inept as Milan is a pro - he screws up his suicide. To carry out his assignment, the killer finds
      himself having to play unlikely nursemaid to this stranger. And the more Milan tries to get rid of him, the more Pignon grows attached to his cold-blooded neighbor. A real pain in the neck…
      The beginning of a (beautiful) friendship? In any case, the start of a mad day for two ill-assorted men who should never have met in the first place
