A Feature film by Michel Poulette

Release in France : 03/05/1995

    Synopsis

    Louis Jobin, an ordinary young man, is a TV maniac, continually hopping from one channel to the next. A competition allows him to become the first person in the world to spend three months of his life live on television. Twenty-four hours a day, a Canal 19 camera follows him in his daily life. Louis soon discovers that fame isn't everything that it's cracked up to be. The lack of privacy is particularly annoying when he falls in love. Louis decides to rebel and hatches a plot to catch television in its own trap : the image.

    About

    "In the Sixties, when Andy Warhol said that we were heading for a society in which each one of us would be famous for fifteen minutes in our lifetime, perhaps he was intuitively sensing one of the stronger secondary effects of the TV phenomenon : "I wanna be a star". Of all the people who dream of being on TV, very few think about the demands and consequences of such a situation. This is what happens to the hero of "Reality Show". The film raises various issues. What does the fact of winning change in our lives ? What becomes of our relationship with others ? What happens when the least incident becomes public knowledge ? When the audience rises up against your opinions ? When you're abandoned ? My film deals with television's cannibalistic nature, its influence on young audiences and shows soap opera taken to its extreme limits... Louis Jobin is a very real character, he could be your neighbour. Thanks to his experiences, he will realize fame cannot bring true happiness."
