About the Movie
Middle-aged musician Antoine suddenly decides to end his career. After several days aimless wandering, he is hired as the caretaker of an old residential building in Paris. Mathilde is a recently retired resident, generous-spirited and deeply involved with the management of the building. After she discovers a crack in her living room wall, her worry gradually turns to panic - what if the building were to collapse? Slowly, Antoine develops a fondness for this woman he is afraid will slip into madness. Through a confusion of misfires and anxiety, the two develop an awkward friendship, funny yet solid, which might just get them through this difficult patch...

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Falling back repeatedly on in-your-face symbolism - especially with regard to the specter of decline - Mr. Salvadori seems content to idle in neutral.
Fresh: Thoroughly nonjudgmental in its observations, Pierre Salvadori's In the Courtyard ranks as one of the funnier films about victims of depression and mental illness.
