Eighteen years after his last film (The Troubles We've Seen: A History of Journalism in Wartime), Marcel Ophuls comes back as one of the last cinema master and more especially, the most caustic and the funniest.

Son of the great Max Ophuls, Marcel can be a generous man and an admirer. Marcel talks with and about personalities like Jeanne Moreau, Bertold Brecht, Ernst Lubitsch, Otto Preminger, Woody Allen, Stanlely Kubrick and, of course, his friend François Truffaut.
