The Mystery of Henri Pick Overview

While conducting a television interview with the widow of restaurateur Henri Pick, who is the posthumous author of a bestseller, talk show host Jean-Michel Rouche (Fabrice Luchini) attracts the wrath of his employer and the spectators by suggesting the book could be a sham. The same evening, his wife leaves him and he is fired from his job at the network. This double disgrace reinforces his desire to prove that he is right.

Because how could a small town pizzeria owner, to whom no literary ambition has before been attributed, have written this sublime novel without anyone’s knowledge, which was only then discovered by a young publisher in a pile of rejected manuscripts? Jean-Michel is joined in his investigation by the late author’s bookworm daughter, Josephine (Camille Cottin), after convincing her the book couldn’t have been written by her father.
