Renée is a concierge in Paris - reliable though totally uncultured. But
beneath this façade lies the real Renée: passionate about the arts, and
more knowledgeable in many ways than her employers, with their outwardly
successful but emotionally void lives. Meanwhile, several floors up,
eleven-year-old Paloma Josse is determined to avoid the pampered and
vacuous future laid out for her. But unknown to them both, a chance
acquaintance with their enigmatic new neighbour, Mr Ozu, will change
their lives forever. Adapted from Muriel Barbery's best-selling novel
/The Elegance of the Hedgehog./
