American film producer Jeremy Prokosch hires respected Austrian director Fritz Lang to direct a film adaptation of Homer's Odyssey. Dissatisfied with Lang's treatment of the material as an art film, Prokosch hires Paul Javal, a novelist and playwright, to rework the script. The conflict between artistic expression and commercial opportunity parallels Paul's sudden estrangement from his wife Camille Javal , who becomes aloof with Paul after being left alone with Prokosch, a millionaire playboy.

Belle mise en abîme. Un film délicat, soignée (même précieux) et en même temps déchirant. Excellent !
