by Philippe Claudel

Trois histoires à la mémoire d'une industrie en voie de disparition, celle du jouet (région de Franche Comté). D'abord celle d'un riche industriel, M.Framottet, s'offrant comme jouet une des premières automobiles (dans les années 1900), ce qui va faire basculer sa vie entière. Puis, le tragique sort de Firmin, ouvrier tourneur, qui perdra ses mains d'artisan durant la Grande guerre. Enfin, celle de cet employé retrouvant son émouvante mémoire d'enfant orphelin grâce à un Pierrot découvert dans la vitrine d'un musée.
