Rating: PG for treatment of mature themes involving suicide, alcoholism, and some sexual references.

Drama. Based on the play by Israel Horovitz. A middle-aged American (Kevin Kline) arrives in Paris to claim the apartment left to him by his father; intending to sell it for a quick buck. Once there, however, he discovers a refined old woman, Mathilde (Maggie Smith), living in the apartment with her daughter, Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Mathias quickly learns that the apartment is a viager. By the rules of viager, he will not actually get possession of the apartment until Mathilde dies, and he must pay a monthly fee.
