    • Synopsis
    • Toscan... No need to introduce him to his 'film family'. From the very day he passed away, the idea was born to remember, secure and recapture the spark that had been snuffed out so abruptly. A portrait of Toscan, using hundreds of interviews with him over a period of almost 30 years, to reconstruct the puzzle of this extraordinarily true-to-itself thought process that sprang from a real culture with which he irrigated all fields of filmmaking, underneath his guise as a flamboyant troubadour celebrating art and life as if it were all a party. The energy, enthusiasm, humor and indomitable conviction should fascinate, delight, move, enlighten and surprise - while making one think, way beyond the professional context that was his, in an era that truly needs it.
