Pierre Foret is funny and that is his tragedy. That is also his job, he warms up the audience on a TV set. Pierre Foret is funny but he would rather be good-looking. Or an actor. Or a singer. A matter of credibility. Pierre Foret cannot take it any more. He has not slept in six nights. He has kidnapped Clovis Costa, the singer, the Idol, and sequesters him in the apartment he grew up in.

Of course, the reference to "King of comedy" from Scorcese is obvious, but the comparison ends after that. Because the hero has no plan and seems over-crazy. And the story is also crazy with no realism about "a kidnapping followed by negotiations with police forces". In fact, we are in the dream-nightmare of a frustrated comedian and we have to guess what is real or not. Perhaps nothing is real, but don't wait to have the answer by the end.
Despite this rambling story line, the movie is hypnotic, we cannot stop watching it, thanks to Michael Youn who brought his crazy character and universe in his part, and perhaps his own real life-experience as a "frustrated comedian"...
