The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq - Poster anglais international

The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

A Feature film by Guillaume Nicloux

Produced by Les Films du Worso

Production year : 2013

    Synopsis

    September 16th 2011. The TV news networks, newspapers, blogs, websites and radio stations are all reporting on one story: star author Michel Houellebecq, winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt in 2010, has been abducted.
    Some members of the media go so far as to suggest that Al-Qaeda may be involved.

    For the next few days, the news ripples through literary circles and members of the press, feeding buzz and speculation. A brazen kidnapping? An identity crisis? A plan to escape abroad? A schizophrenic delirium?

    Michel will never provide the media with any rational explanation for what happened to him.
