It's difficult to ascertain a target audience for this one. It's been
on release in France for a while and has yet to attract a comment on
IMDb. Richard Bohringer is a fine actor whose Best Actor Cesar for Le
Grand Chemin was well deserved and daughter Romane appears to have put
her 'wild child' days behind her and turned in at least one fine stage
performance in a French adaptation of The Glass Menagerie. Some time
ago Richard wrote an autobiographical novel and has now directed a film
version that may best be described as self-indulgent. He plays a
character named Richard, Romane plays a character called Romane;
another actor plays a younger Richard and so on. Plots, however, are
thin on the ground. People schmooze in bars, a young writer sits at
Richard's feet and presumably learns from him. Richard 'performs' a
passionate, frenzied quasi rap with a small group of musicians and goes
on the road. That's about it. Annie Girardot makes a fleeting
appearance and steals the movie which, to be fair, is not that hard to
do. One best forgotten.
