French Film about a Teenage Boy Who Gets a Job in a Restaurant

Hi. I’m looking for a french film (I think – could be Italian) where a teenage boy who is alone in the world gets a job at a restaurant on a pier. He makes friends with a waiter there who is much older. The restaurant owner is in a downward spiral and the restaurant starts to struggle, many staff leave him and his wife does also. Eventually he goes berserk, sets fire to the restaurant and kills the boy in a fit of rage. The last scene is the waiter the boy made friends with claims the boy’s body from the morgue as he is the only one who is left who cared about the boy. He drives out of the morgue with the boy’s coffin on the roof of his car.


Movie was probably released in the early 90s but could have been late 80s.

Got something to say?
