Trivia

When Olivier Assayas began writing the screenplay for Doubles Lives in the mid-2000s, he was not yet aware that he would make a feature film. For a long time, the director had been working on the story of a publisher confronted with the transformation of the world and its ability to adapt to it. See more »

Not for everyone, but you know who you are.

Interesting and entertaining. The English title is "Non-Fiction", but the original French title "Doubles Vies" (Double Lives) is more descriptive. The theme centers around writing and publication in the internet age, with provocative snippets of bracing conversation, some hilarious deadpan humor, and sexual infidelity as a metaphor for how writing cheats reality, all perfectly framed by the French language and the Gallic temperament. (Needs to be seen in the original French, with subtitles if necessary.) You could describe it as a fast-talking intellectual comedy, but it's one of those movies that can be as deep as you want to make it. I plan to rent it so I can stop/replay some of the dialogue. The director, Olivier Assayas, is a master of layered meanings.
