For once, a film title so perfectly descriptive, you almost don't need to watch the film. Unlike nearly all other "making of ..." documentary porn movies that rely on voice-over or interviews with the actors, this film was built from a seemingly never-ending series of shooting sequences where someone filmed the (often) naked director or cameraman filming (mostly) soft-core productions. And the prologue to the film tells you this is what they are going to do. Subtitles on the copy I watched were clear and well-translated from French.
Each segment begins with the actors revealing their identity cards to the camera, blurred for legal reasons. Then the litany of: do this, do that, turn this way, don't do that, and so on. There were some unintentionally funny scenes where the director was trying to explain the context of the story so actors could improvise, but it got so complicated you could almost feel eyes glazing over while he struggled to say the same thing in a different way. And there were some demonstrations of "faking" techniques that will ensure you never watch porn the same way again.
Without spoiling anything, I can say that the final few minutes involve a really, really self-confident actress who clearly enjoys her work, as well she should--if she can get it.
