This pivotal essay makes it possible to understand the way Rohmer thought about film, also perceiving it as a dual reality. Those who do not know themselves and do not know what to do with themselves are drawn to film, as it offers a means of escape. The basis for this documentary essay consists of interviews with artists discussing their relationship to cinema.

“The fine arts, literature and music are all art forms that belong in my life; I want to show them in film, but do not want my films to speak of artists, as I do not want to make films about them.” Éric Rohme
