Veteran actor Jean Rochefort delivers a tour de force as an 80-year-old man suffering from memory lapses. Claude enters the care of his older daughter in the French countryside, but still dreams of escaping to Miami. His burning desires take on a funny, bittersweet tone in Philippe Le Guay's capable hands. 

Though pushing 80, Claude has not lost one bit of his charismatic presence and charm. He does have a few memory issues, however, and consequently he leans on this eldest daughter for help. She has to deal with her elderly father, who sometimes pretends to have forgotten something with the sole purpose of tormenting those around him, the family business, as well as her 20-year-old son, whom she's raising on her own. Bittersweet yet breezy, hilarious yet melancholy, the adorable "Floride" gives the ever excellent Jean Rochefort the role of his life and, in return, he shows why he's considered one of the greatest French actors of all time.
