A low-budget movie that is quite a movie!
10 August 2000 | by (Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie wasn't made with a great budget, but the result was astonishing and unique. It talks about Louis Jobin, a very normal guy who wins a contest and who has to be filmed 24 hours a day.... and it gets on his nerves after a while! The concept of this movie was so refreshing and great that it was bought by Ron Howard for his movie EdTV, made in 1999 with a great cast composed of Matthew McConaughey, Ellen DeGeneres, Jenna Elfman and Elizabeth Hurley. Cool!
