L'enlèvement de Michel houellebecq (2014) comedy-drama

Director: Guillaume Nicloux
Starring:Michel Houellebecq, Maxime Lefrançois, Françoise Lebrun, Mathieu Nicourt


Synopsis : 

In 2011, newspapers speculated that the infamous French novelist Michel Houellebecq had been kidnapped when the media was unable to track him down for several weeks. This happened while he was promoting his new book,The Map and the Territory, which includes a grizzly depiction of the fictional murder of Houellebecq himself. When the real Houellebecq eventually reappeared, one account claimed that he had simply been experiencing problems with his Internet connection. The writer has refused to discuss the disappearance, endowing the event with an aura of mystery and ambiguity perfectly in line with his morally ambivalent fiction, which addresses politically sensitive issues in contemporary France with the same ironic distance and satirical guile evinced by his derisive reaction to the media commotion surrounding his alleged kidnapping.
