But gradually it becomes clear that no work is going to be done. In fact, Broustal and his much younger pretty wife seem to want Bastien for something very different than for his television talents.

I don't understand why this film didn't get more exposure cause it sure is a UFO of a film. Knowing where it is going is impossible. Berléand as the media tycoon is incredible, Canet perfect in his ready-to-do-anything-to-succeed character, and Krugger is just stunning.
Cold sense of humor.
A good film to rent.
The end is pure poetry and a reflexion on what our society has become.
Recommended ? Of course.
