After fifteen years' service, Henri Boulanger is made redundant from his job. Shocked, he attempts suicide, but can't go through with it, so he hires a contract killer in a seedy bar to murder him at some unspecified time in the future. But almost immediately he meets and falls in love with Margaret, a flower-seller, which makes Henri realise that his life has some meaning after all. But when he goes back to the bar to cancel the contract, he finds it has been demolished - and there's no way he can get in touch with the killer...

"16.3. YLE Areena Ei nyt mitään parasta Kaurismäkeä, mutta ei ihan paskintakaan."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (89 movies items)

"23.1, TV Kolmas näkemäni Kaurismäen elävä kuva. Tässä puhuttiin englantia, mikä ei tosin vaikuta elokuvaan juuri millään tapaa, koska tyyli on juuri sitä Kaurismäeltä saattaa odottaa. Sympaattisia elämän kolhimia hahmoja ja huvittavia kohtauksia, mutta ei tämä loppujen lopuksi merkittävästi itseäni säväyttänyt."
