Droit dans le mur
Cast & Crew
Romain is a washed-up film comedian who doesn't understand what's just hit him: reduced to peddling a retrograde script to uninterested young industry folk, he's rehearsing the lead in a play directed by his histrionic sister; he can't get a fair deal for the converted windmill he must sell to pay taxes; his wife has vanished with their houseboat; his two young sons and strident mistress are all clamoring for attention; a private detective is trying to get incriminating photos; and his beleaguered best friend has his hands full propping up Romain's sagging self-esteem.
Feature directorial debut for actor Pierre Richard.
Began shooting April 7, 1997.
