Director Marc can’t bear the endless criticism from the producers about his film and escapes with his footage and editor to the French Cevennes to be able to finish the project in peace.

Director Michel Gondry, known for his Oscar-winning film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, made films that became famous for their innovative and imaginative visual language, such as The Science of Sleep and Mood Indigo.

In Le livre des solutions, Gondry’s recognizable fantasy is once again at play.
