Loved it.
7 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Although there were actually people who left half an hour after the movie started, I loved it. The movie's for those who want to see how these things work "backstage". Baffie provided all the details about how the movie industry works: the producers, the actors, plot development, everything. It is an excellent example of any of "The Making of..." short films you usually see as a bonus on a DVD. It is a totally absurd film, made by an impertinent, reckless and blatant TV hero, and this is what makes it even more interesting, despite the fact that almost all the french movie stars appear as guests.

A wonderful debut.
