1948 - Louis-Ferdinand Céline in Denmark, in exile, accused of collaboration with the Nazis during the occupation of the France. He is accompanied by Lucette, his wife and his cat Bebert. Based on the real-life meeting in between the French author Louis-Ferdinand Céline and Milton Hindus, a young American literature professor, where the Frenchman was in self-imposed exile. Hindus, who was Jewish, would later write of his shock and disappointment at the meeting and seeing a novelist he admired "drooling out of both sides of his mouth". He had been invited to stay with Céline for two months, but left after three weeks. Céline was later convicted of collaboration in his absence by a Paris court and sentenced to a year in jail.Written by

This is really the first movie in which Géraldine looks actually like a grandma : black dress, gray pants, dark pullover, hair in bun This is not really a joke as her couple lives in a old farm, almost like cavemen, with no comfort and rags And honestly, her pal playing her husband writer Celine would have been more helpful in Quasimodo or Planet of the Apes !!
Anyway, this depressive setting really doesn't help the movie, all the more this is a dreadful, stupid artist Biopic ! Producers take us really for dimwits : a artist releases art works but an artist's life is not an art work ! It's very pretentious to think that the artist life is as essential and important as the art, except for merchants eager to sell us products after products I got my eye-opener with U2 : i love their music but hearing them talk about it, it's just silly Now medias fill us up every second with facts about People : it's soup that we don't need, it's pride for them and a punishment for us : we are nothing compared to those artists !
For sure, among Géraldine worst movies ever !!!
