The shamblingly charismatic Louis-Do de Lencquesaing plays an unfailingly-enthused, financially-doomed, producer obviously modelled on the late Humbert Balsan. For a while, we’re hooked by the film’s brutally honest depiction of the sharp end of independent cinema, but as worries begin to weigh more heavily, the focus shifts to the
long-suffering wife (Alice Gautier) who is obviously wondering, like us, whether this masculine rage to build a legacy is actually depriving her and her children of a life in the meantime.
