Making a film about the choreographer Jérôme Bel means embarking on a paradoxical project: how do you direct the anti-director? There’s a risk of seeing your film turn against itself.

Whether he is making a show about failure or inviting disabled people to dance at the Opéra de Paris, Jérôme Bel has an intrinsically contrarian streak. So his rebellion against this attempt to make a portrait of him comes as no surprise. Perhaps more astonishing is that the power struggle over this record of a brilliant but tricky mind at work yields not only an exhilarating dialogue about artistic ownership, but a sidesplitting deadpan comedy.
