In eight films, Jacques Audiard made his mark as one of the most important French filmmakers. His singular oeuvre enjoys unparalleled audience and critical acclaim. The man himself, however, preferred to live outside of the public eye. For the first time ever, this film sheds light on his life and work as seen from inside. "This beautiful documentary touches the truth of an author who became a major figure in only eight films" Télé Obs "An elegant and profound portrait " Télérama TT "A captivating portrait" Télé Star "The irresistible exploration of a disillusioned filmmaker" La Libre Belgique
