Synopsis This is the story of an old-school pornographer, Jacques Laurent (Jean-Pierre Léaud). After a rather successful career and after retiring in the 80s without making his great work -a movie on a hunting party where the prey is a young girl-, Laurent goes back to directing due to want of money. But he soon discovers there is no place for him in the new ways of an industry where subtlety is no longer allowed and where mechanic acts are worth more than erotic tension. Meanwhile, his son reappears unexpectedly, after long years with no news: he ran away when he was a teenager the same day he discovered his father's profession. His return to the fold and the readjustment of the father-son relationship transform Laurent's subdued life and awakens all types of unresolved issues within him. An emotional crisis of the whole existence and a couple's crisis that will turn him inside out, but which may still bear some fruit.
