With Jean-François Octave, nobody knows where is situated the limit between the art and the life, the truth and the forgery. His work is quite at once a personal diary fed by meetings and by curiosity, and a kaleidoscope of the worldly, pointless or grave news.
The artist was associated with the elaboration of the movie, by the reading of some of his texts and by occurring in the graphic conception of the credits and the crossheads.
The screenplay of the movie is a continuation of fictionalized atmospheres allowing to exploit the various facets of the work of Jean-François Octave, one can as if we followed him in the progress of the typical day of an artist of the end of the twentieth century.
