Description

Original Title: Le mystère Henri Pick

Adapted from the novel by David Foenkinos, The Mystery of Henri Pick is a captivating literary detective story meets buddy comedy starring Fabrice Luchini (In the House) and Camille Cottin (also starring in Dumped).

In a strange library in the heart of Brittany, a young editor finds an extraordinary manuscript. She immediately decides to publish it. The novel becomes a bestseller. But the author, Henri Pick, a Breton pizza chef who died two years earlier, "never wrote anything besides a grocery list," according to his widow. Suspecting a literary hoax, a famed critic decides to investigate, with the unexpected help of the daughter of the mysterious Henri Pick.
