Almost penniless, Pierrette has moved into her son's tiny studio apartment in
the suburbs. He is a trainee in a nearby factory and, at first, is more surprised
than delighted to see her.
Amid new encounters and activities, Pierrette, an independent woman who above all hates playing the victim and arousing the sympathy of others, tries to maintain or lose her balance with a son and daughter whom she would like to help but who have lost the habit of needing her. She also needs to cope with her sudden passion for a priest very popular with the media, and with an affair with an antique dealer that will lead to jail.
La Dilettante is a bittersweet tale, meandering and unexpected, told with neither dogmatism nor any preconceived ideas.
