Can you identify this film? - 22/7/2012 6:38:42 PM

I'm trying to find the name of a French film I saw on UK television in 1993.

At the start of the film, a man accidentally locks himself out of his apartment while naked (he's just been in the shower). When trying to force his way back in to his apartment, he surprises a young boy from the building. The boy is frightened, as he's never met the man before (who I think is a newcomer to the building) and is understandably startled by the situation. He backs away from the man and, in his panic, falls from a stairwell. The boy is seriously injured and is in hospital for the remainder of the film.

The man then befriends the boy's (single) mother, without at first knowing that the boy is her son. The film then examines their growing friendship and the man's difficulty in dealing with the guilt of being inadvertently responsible for the accident.

I've been trying to find this film for some time. Are you able to help?

Many thanks

JS

Yes - it's not on there. I think it's a bit more obscure that anything on the Wikipedia list.

Thanks for your response though
