Who is Darius Caunes? You can see him as he leaves home, smartly dressed and plunged in thought in a way that always makes him look slightly absent-minded.

Darius gives Rose every Wednesday off instead of Saturdays, when the printshop stays open. And four days a month, Darius goes out to do a little shopping around town. He cooks for himself, watches television and takes particular care of his cat - named Mireille, after his wife. The orderly life of a meticulous man.
