    A portrait of Ernest Hemingway in love makes us delve into the intimacy of a man infinitely more complex than the image he liked to give. We will discover the author's relationship with each of his 4 wives, which will enable us to re-read his work with a different perspective.

    Each of them corresponds to a time and a place during the author's life, allowing us to move from the bohemian Paris of the 1920s to the Florida of the 1930s, then back to Europe during World War II before discovering the Cuba of the 1950s; our story ends in Idaho, America, where Ernest Hemingway chose to kill himself at the age of 61.

    Sold in more than a million copies in the United States, this morbid book is a plunge into the sick mind of a serial killer yuppie.In the early 1990s, the controversial publication of the novel American Psycho was a bombshell.

    This scandalous novel had been pilloried upon its release, its qualities only appearing later. When cooler heads prevailed, the world finally saw how accurate the author actually was. Politics, money, sexuality, capitalist frenzy, over-consumption: the book was a portrait of contemporary America against the backdrop of the West’s decline.
    The writer portrays Patrick Bateman, a young wolf of Wall Street by day and a serial killer by night. The violence and the crudeness of the description of his murders deeply shocked the readers. Not to mention the racist, homophobic, misogynistic ranting, hatred of the poor and of children that the author forces his audience to hear without restraint through his character's mouth.
    The writer withstood death threats, calls to boycott by feminist organizations, cancellation of promotional tours, lambasting by critics (with very rare exceptions such as Norman Mailer or John Irving)... The release of Bret Easton Ellis' novel in 1991, then its destiny until it became a cult work, adapted twice for the cinema and then in the form of a musical on Broadway, could provide enough material by itself for yet another novel.

    Last August, on the 5th, novelist Toni Morrison, first black woman author being awarded the Nobel Prize of Literature, passed away at the age of 88. Her eleven novels were translated in dozens of languages, and she is considered a true figurehead of African-American literature.

    She, who Barack Obama remembered as « a national treasure » the day after she died, has considerably marked the History of the United States through her commitments and the literary and cultural revolution she has initiated. For almost 50 years, being by turns a critic, a book editor, a college professor, a creative author of novels, poems and essays, Morrison claimed the invention of a black writing and brought the light on what was kept quiet, smothered, in the US history. She put words on and pointed out what was silenced and repressed: the Black history.

    Kafkaesque! This is the right word to describe this incredible, even miraculous, journey of the work of the Prague German-speaking writer. When Kafka died at 40 in 1924, he ordered his friend and executor Max Brod to burn everything down, although he had only published short texts …

    Max Brod discovers and publishes Kafka’s three great novels discovered in his boxes: The Trial (1925), The Castle (1926), and America, (1927). A betrayal that gives birth to masterpieces of the 20th century literature.
    In 1968, when Brod died - he wanted to bequeath everything to the National Library of Israel but did not have time to finalize his bequest - it all went to his secretary, Esther Hoffe. She committed to entrusting this heritage to the German Literature Archives in Marbach (or LiMo). At the end of 1988, Esther Hoffe sold the manuscript of The Trial to them for $ 1.7 million. It is still there today.
    When she died in 2007, her two daughters, Eva and Ruth inherited the manuscript, but the National Library of Israel contested the inheritance and demanded The Trial to the German Archives, arguing a law which prohibited important archives from leaving the country before having been copied: Everything must return to the National Library’s shelves, including "The Trial"... unduly acquired! This is the first page of the most Kafkaesque judicial soap opera, which will end in... 2016. Germany and Israel are waging a "war of memory", as for today's Czech Republic, it simply is satisfied with some statues and commemorative plaques to the great writer ...

    Victor Hugo spent 16 years writing “Les Misérables”, between Paris, Guernsey and Waterloo. It was a long creative process and not only because the manuscript has 828 leaves. The story of the writing of “Les Miserables” was a true serial novel, very 19th century style.

    “Les Misérables” was created in scabrous circumstances to say the least. Hugo, the inveterate ladies' man, was caught in the act of adultery on the 5th of July, 1845, with Léonie d´Aunet, a very married woman of letters. She is thrown in prison in Saint-Lazare, while the already famous writer, peer of France protected by his parliamentary immunity, chooses to cloister himself at home to let the scandal fall ... A confinement conducive to writing: he embarked on the writing of "Jean Tréjean", which he later renamed "Les Misères". The 1848 revolution comes to interrupt the drafting. In the aftermath of the coup d'etat of "Napoleon the Little", Juliette Drouet, Victor Hugo’s inspiring muse, literally exfiltrates her great man by train, then takes care of the famous "manuscript chest". This chest will follow Hugo and Juliette on the roads of exile. Inside, among the texts already published, the work in progress, the bundles of documents, and of course, "Les Misères". It was not until 1860, during his exile in Guernsey, that Hugo resumed writing.
    Hugo had a waterproof bag made "to measure" to protect the manuscript in the event of a shipwreck then a wooden chest and finally an iron cabinet in ordrer to protect “Les Misérables”. Finally, Hugo will sell his book to a Belgian publisher for an astronomical sum, which will allow him to live until his death, free from want.

    A provincial woman who became an icon of the Belle Epoque, she became a celebrated writer, a pioneer of autofiction turning herself into a devilishly romantic character, inseparable from her work. Our film immerses the viewer in the novel of her life.

    By turns novelist, mime, dancer, nude, critic, screenwriter, publicist, and even shopkeeper, Colette lived life to the full, continually reinventing herself through a series of scandals and metamorphoses. Retracing Colette’s career also means sketching a portrait of the early 20th century. With her, in the Paris of the Belle Epoque, we enter the intellectual and high-society worlds, meeting many of the colorful figures of the period as we move through the music-hall scene.
