You can't go wrong with an old lady
Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a 57 year old recovering alcoholic who inherits an enviable apartment in Paris from his estranged father. But when he arrives from the USA to sell his inheritance, having spent the last of his money on the ticket, he discovers that his apartment is a "viager" where a 92 year old Englishwoman (Maggie Smith) has the right of residence for as long as she lives, and, in a king of reverse mortgage arrangement, must be paid a monthly stipend. Her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) is not impressed when Mathias also moves in.
