Summary Hubert is an autistic man who shapes his life by going to museums (in Brussels, London and Paris). The world outside is a puzzle to him. He talks to few people and only about museums and art. When his neighbour downstairs, a lonely woman, invites him again and again to come for a drink, he only goes because she has a painting that interests him. When she tries to seduce him, he doesn't understand. He takes photos of the pictures he likes -- usually of beautiful women -- and paints copies of the paintings at home. There is only one real woman who fascinates him; she lives in the opposite building and he can see her balcony from his window.
