Storyline

Olivier is a homeless real estate agent so broke he camps out in the apartments he is supposed to be selling. The death of his mother brings along many surprises, including a very unexpected inheritance: a run-down building on the outskirts of Paris. Faith renewed, Olivier is going to be able to pay long overdue child support, rebuild his relationship with his daughter, help out his dad and square up with his ex-wife. His hopes die out when he sees the building: it is completely run down, filthy, a burden rather than the life raft he needed. Moreover, an old woman, Liliane, is squatting the top floor, and he can't flip the place with her around. Trapped between blackmail, debts and threats, Olivier is struggling to keep a cool head. His only friend is the talking goldfish he saved form a near death, who turns out to be a trustworthy confidant and quite a droll character. As he gets legal consulting from his goldfish, he discovers that he can travel in time. Will he be able to change ... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

Surreal, moving, funny. Beautiful.

I am very surprised by the low rating. If I have to guess the reason, it is probably the fact that the occurrences in the series cannot happen in real life. The plot involves time travelling, but not as in sci-fi movie, but in a poetic way, not trying to explain it somehow, because it does not matter. If this kind of thing doesn't bother you, you should definitely try this series, as well as the excellent Israeli film Jellyfish, which was also created by Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen.
