The one with the closed eyes, in this French film, would seem to be the rogue actor (Gerard Desarthe) who, out of boredom, decides to pretend that he is blind. His imposture soon puts him in a situation where he must continue it or risk exposure. As he falls, stumbles and bumps into things to keep the illusion alive, his deception becomes a form of torture. He begins to hallucinate fantasies of revenge. What lengths will he go to? He does not know, himself.
