Alain Ducasse has become a modern-day hero in France, and the film follows the story of his life in the context of the "dissident" movement and the growing radicalization of French society. In the film, he is given a microphone to speak about the problems of French society in a short documentary. Ducasse is a reporter for the newspaper "Le Figaro" and he is so accustomed to the current events of his life that he even goes into the middle of them, reporting them for the paper. The film is mostly about his own personal life, the issues that he is going to be covering, and his life as a reporter. The film is very good and informative. It shows the many difficulties of his life and the people who surround him. It also shows how the media has become a target of the radical right wing in France. The film is full of facts, interviews and quotes from other important people. It shows that many people in France are actually against the government and the current situation. Ducasse has to take the point of view that it is the government, not the media, that is to blame. He talks about the police, the secret services, the military and the secret police. He also talks about the problems of the "dissident" movement and his own personal experiences as a journalist. He speaks about his "dissident" days and the reasons he went to the media. He talks about the problems of his family and how they suffer from the current situation in France. He talks about the actions of the government and the reaction of the media. This film is a very good documentary that shows that the media and the government have turned into enemies.

Excellent documentary that explores the original Alain Ducasse story. The story of Ducasse as a French Canadian filmmaker is well documented, but it's also the story of the artistic struggles that overcame the challenging life of a Muslim in a German-occupied zone in WWII. The documentary starts in France, then moves to Beirut and Lebanon, then moves to Germany, and finally the Mitteleuropas region of Berlin. The filmmakers, Manuela Huys and Marcel Cousineau, show the chronological spread of events that led to Ducasse's documentary. The documentary covers not only Ducasse's artistic achievements, but also his personal life and what he had to face as a Muslim living in Nazi-occupied Germany. The documentary also looks at the question of how far would a Muslim be willing to go to earn the respect and the financial support that he or she needed to support his or her family. The documentary is presented in French and Arabic, with English subtitles. The documentary was made with great care and with a great deal of care and skill. The documentary is edited, scored, and directed with a great deal of skill and talent. The filmmaking and music score of the documentary is very well done, as well as the production values. The documentary is about Ducasse, but it's also about the creative community that made his documentary. The documentary is also about the cultural differences that led Ducasse and his family to make his film. It's also about the relationship between Ducasse and his director, Bruno Bibernat, and Bibernat's documentary, Alain Ducasse, is an integral part of the documentary. The documentary is also about the rise of anti-Semitism in France after the Second World War, and also about how Ducasse managed to stay on as a filmmaker despite being the subject of many anti-Semitic attacks. The documentary is informative, and well produced and edited, but is also very moving. The documentary is well worth seeing. Highly recommended.

I had never heard of this film before. I didn't really expect it to be anything amazing and it was a little different. But it is not an action movie, it is more like a documentary about Alain Ducasse. It was not exactly easy to watch the film and at the end it was too much, but I liked it because it made me realize how a simple man like Ducasse was, how hard it was to be a professional pianist, how he tried to keep his family and a beautiful girlfriend (dame and what she did with her life) in balance. All this and the performance of Gérard Depardieu were the reasons I enjoyed this film so much. I have already read other reviews and I understand that not everyone likes it. I think you have to be open-minded about this film, but if you are into music it is a must see. It is not what you expect, but a nice story about a man who tried to do his best in the world. His relationships with his family, his friend and his girlfriend are very important. It is not about the music, it is about the man and the family and it shows how good he was. I like the film a lot, I highly recommend it to anybody who likes films about music, the film is about a true and sincere life story and should be watched, but not for the sake of music. It is not a drama or comedy or action, it is not about any kind of short story. But it is about a true story, true life, a man who had the most difficult life, a person who tried to make a difference in the world and what he was able to achieve with his music. Enjoy!

This was the first French film I had seen since the beginning of France's nuclear experiment and it wasn't really a film but rather a portrait of an artist who, in the end, left behind a very sad legacy. Alain Ducasse is the subject of this documentary. His paintings are public property but he is not allowed to use them. His pictures are a part of a building in Paris which will eventually be torn down and a huge parking lot will replace it. In his art he creates powerful images and a famous quote "I'm a violent man." This is not a commentary on Ducasse's violent art. It is a statement on the world around him. It's a comment on life in a world where artists are mostly unappreciated. In his paintings there is no justice. There is no right or wrong. People don't appreciate art but they want to see what Ducasse has done. But Ducasse is not just an artist. He is a failure and is destroyed. He leaves behind a kind of raw loneliness that is very sad. It was a rare opportunity to see something of an artist who lives not as an artist but as a man, a man who lost his sense of hope, and he lost it because he didn't give up. At the end of the film, you have the feeling of watching a video tape. You have an impression of the sadness of a man who saw his life pass him by. It is not an easy thing to watch, but at the same time you have a feeling of being there. I think that, ultimately, it is the viewer's responsibility to make the film a living document and to view it as a document because it is. It doesn't really matter if you hate the artist or don't really care for his work but it is important to remember that art is a way of life. And life is short. Alain Ducasse lived a short life, but a life that is not very long.
