Michel Houellebecq, possibly the most widely read living French writer, was believed kidnapped on September 16, 2011. But was he really? After a flurry of media reports of his abduction, the story goes cold and Houellebecq, famously reclusive, refuses to set the record straight. Now he goes one step further by starring as himself in a film that purports to tell the tale.
“This film is an odd little French farce with decidely niche appeal, but it will reward curious viewers with its understated humor and unexpected warmth.” – Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
The film opens March 25, 2015 at Film Forum in New York.
