Joachim La Fosse’s first film, Folie Privé, was shown in competition at Locarno in 2004. His new work is a comedy, an ironic account of the flop of that directing debut at the box office. La Fosse also describes some of the difficulties of raising finance for film production: his main character is trying to make a movie but is unable to find any backers. His solution is to turn to unemployed actors and technicians, all motivated by their passion for their job. With delicacy and expertise, La Fosse also shows us the end of a love affair and reminds us of the need for caring and loving relationships.
