What it is
One-named writer-director Mawenn stars in her own fakeumentary about a filmmaker stroking the fragile egos of some Gallic screen divas, including manic Julie Depardieu and The Duchess of Langeais's Jeanne Balibar. The subject here, savagely explored, is aging and fame.
Why we're psyched
Mawenn is a cult figure in France: She bore Luc Besson's child while in her teens and has since succeeded as an unsparing stage monologuist. We know the fur will fly.
