Olivier - actor and writer - is working with his friend Luc on a film they have long dreamed of. Olivier hopes at last to become the classic hero in a story he wrote himself. Working diligently on his cinematographic alter-ego, his energy is really put to the test. For instance, he does nothing when he sees a woman being beaten up. This incident haunts him and increasingly creeps into his script. When he falls in love with the same unsuspecting woman in real life, the incident gets in the way of the relationship. Fleeing into the fantasy of his script, the discrepancy with reality increases. Awarded the Grolsch Movie Award in 1999.
