One evening architect Marc decides to shave off his moustache. Neither his wife nor his friends and colleagues seem to notice, and in fact they all affirm he never had a mous- tache at all. An exploration of the way such an apparently little thing can disrupt every- day life and set off a descent into paranoia in a world so attached to appearances. Adapted from one of Carrère’s earliest novels.
