Director Guillaume Nicloux on realism; - When you see Michel Houellebecq drinking with the guys in the film, they're drinking real alcohol. When you see him making love, he's really making love. When you see him driving that car at 280 kilometers per hour, he's really doing it. See more »
Michel Houllebecq stars as himself in the story about his abduction in 2011. It is a kidnapping story like no other.
Never mind the critical reviews...If you know a little bit about Michel Houllebecq, this is a really funny movie. The guy is clearly, in real life, as annoying and stubborn as the image you get from his novels, though still somehow charming. The ending of this movie is absolutely priceless, but I will not spoil it by revealing it. This movie is for people who are smart enough to value the comedy of Seinfeld and Larry David. And, of course, the comedy of Michel Houllebecq himself.
