Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

This light romantic comedy is set up as a film-within-a-film, and features Francois Cluzet as Ferdinand, a screenwriter and director who has been in the business since he debuted as a child actor. (The same can be said of this film's director and co-scripter, Didier Haudepin). Ferdinand is working on a play about a young actor and his problems, but at the same time, he is trying to iron out his own problems. His beloved Elsa (Christine Pascal) has just left him and he cannot stop himself from writing a subplot dealing with his troubled romantic life. This sets off his producer, and so Ferdinand had better come up with a solution to his plot and his personal life soon.
