Alain (Guillaume Canet), a Parisian publisher, is suspicious of modern reading practices, yet wonders whether he ought to capitulate and switch his literary imprint to digital. He is about to reject the latest manuscript from his old friend Leonard (Vincent Macaigne), a disheveled former success who draws artistic inspiration from real-life romantic entanglements. Alain is married to Selena (Juliette Binoche), an actress playing a ‘crisis management expert’ on a TV cop show, who feels the book could be Leonard’s masterpiece (needless to say, she and Leonard have been carrying on a lengthy affair). Leonard’s partner, the feisty Valerie (Nora Hamzawi), is the PA to a somewhat worthy socialist parliamentarian.
An affectionate satire on the Parisian literary scene, Olivier Assayas’s droll film raises thought-provoking questions of authenticity in a playful fashion.
