Louis has always had a dream, to be on television. But when he enters a contest and wins, the first prize involves a cameraman following him everywhere for three months. The only problem is that Louis has a boring life, so the TV executives decide to put some excitement in it. Written by

Of course some movies and show have taken the idea (whole or part of it). Still the innovative idea of the reality show belongs to Louis 19. It's the story of an invisible man : he is nobody at his job, in the bus, for the kids. Even his mother keeps peeking on him. But one day he enters this contest and wins, making a show of his so-called life. He is followed everywhere, at every moment for good or not.
This movie shows us a side of the media industry to which we are not accustomed to think about. How do celebrities deal with the fact that there will always be someone to watch you, even in the most private moments of your life? It's a great movie that showed me that Québec cinema match the American in some instance. But don't be fooled. It's not "another movie about reality show". It's the first movie about it. ;)
