Slow ManBook - 2005
Paul Rayment is on the threshold of a comfortable old age when a cycling accident results in the amputation of a leg. Humiliated, his body truncated, his life circumscribed, he turns away from his friends. He hires a nurse named Marijana, with whom he has a European childhood in common: hers in Croatia, his in France.
