The problem with Lucie

a film by Lionel Kaplan

10 min - 2014 - France

Lucie is an actress, but she wanted to be a director. She goes reluctantly to one of many casting calls. After the usual questions, her conversation goes wrong with the casting director, and turns into hostility. Until reality meets fiction. Or maybe it’s the other way round.
