    • Synopsis
    • François and his girlfriend Christine have settled in the thickly wooded and secluded region of the Vallée de Joux.
      Although he is not a journalist, François contributes to a small local weekly, describing the life of the region’s inhabitants and the films shown at the valley’s only movie theater. Since he is no film critic, he doesn’t know what to make of the films he’s supposed to write up. So he ends up copying word for word the reviews in “Travelling”, a highly specialized review published in Paris and devoted to the seventh art.
      Very quickly, the cinema becomes his passion, and he sets off for Lausanne to view the press screenings organized for the Lake of Geneva area critics. Here he meets Rosa, a critic for “L’Époque”, a benchmark-setting daily.
      A kinky relationship develops between the two of them, leading François to discover the inner workings of desire: desire of a woman and of a critic. Until the day his cheating is discovered...
      “Another Man” is a social satire of our insatiable need to please and pretend.
