Non-Fiction Doubles vies

Olivier Assayas / France / 2018 / 108 min / French

Alain is an editor at a successful publishing company through which his bohemian friend and writer Léonard publishes his novels. Alain's wife Séléna is the star of a beloved television series while Léonard's wife Valérie is the driven politician's assistant. But when Alain rejects Léonard's new work despite their years-long friendship, the already complex relationship between the couples begins to unravel.

Alain, a successful Parisian publisher struggling to adapt to the digital revolution, has major doubts about the new manuscript of Léonard, one of his long-time authors – another work of autofiction recycling his love affair with a minor celebrity. Selena, Alain’s wife, a famous stage actress, is of the opposite opinion. Alain hires Laure, a young, coolly seductive go-getter, to lead his publishing house into the digital age. 

"The digitalisation of our world and its reconfiguration into algorithms is the modern vector of a change that confuses and overwhelms us. Digital economy infringes rules and often laws. Moreover, it questions what seemed solid and granted in society. Yet, it dissolves on mere contact. Non-Fiction does not attempt to analyse the workings of this new economy, but rather to observe how those questions shake us, personally, emotionally, and sometimes humorously." (Olivier Assayas)
