The Prestige of Death

Le prestige de la mort

Directed by Luc Moullet
France, 2006
Comedy

Synopsis

French comedy director extraordinaire Luc Moullet helms and stars as himself in the nutty mockumentary. The premise has Moullet — in a deprecative self-caricature — far past the prime of his audience appeal. To regenerate public interest, this scheming opportunist fakes his own death.
