104 minutes, 1992

A wanderer named Alex returns to Montréal to find his best friend fleeing town, his ex-girlfriend settled down, and his own nurturing instincts acting up in surprising ways. He moves into an apartment building crammed with characters who offer him the sense of family he craves, then can't help but get himself into romantic predicaments that demand escape. An affair with his best friend's girlfriend leads to kicks, then trouble. His neighbour Anne is smart, attractive, together, and busy raising two kids. Seductive, but way too scary. Alex suffers from the pervasive ailment of the Slacker generation: he's not sure what to want.
