Granny in the nettles

Ferdinand Brun is an odd man. He is the kind of elderly gentleman who takes no pleasure in life and remainsdoggedly bored to death (or maybe bored to live). Like a parasite, he spends his time planning the nastiest possibletricks to upset and annoy the people around him. Then one day, a knot comes loose and his only friend, Daisy thedog, disappears. Ferdinand’s life is in ruins.

When 10-year-old Juliette and Béatrice, the geekiest of grandmothers, literally break down his door and enterhis world, though, Ferdinand finds himself forced to accept radical change. Emerging from his cocoon at last,he realizes it is never too late to start living.

Mémé dans les orties follows the hilarious trials and tribulations of a strange octogenarian who has severerelationship issues… with the women he meets especially!
