Movie Info

Juliette Binoche and Guillame Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas for this wry, slyly seductive tale of sex, lies, and literature. Set amidst the bohemian intelligentsia of the Parisian publishing world, Non-Fiction traces the romantic and emotional fallout that results when a controversial writer begins blurring the line between fact and fiction, using his real-life love affairs -- including a passionate fling with an actress who happens to be married to his editor -- as fodder for his explosive new novel. Balancing dry wit with keen observations on the tensions between art, commerce, and technology, Non-Fiction is a buoyant, breezy delight from a master director at his most effortlessly brilliant.

This is parody... As such, it's very funny and not without winsome affection for its hyperverbal, overprivileged characters.

"Non-Fiction" is an enticing blend of the comic and the serious, a smart and sassy examination of the way we live now.

Is the digital revolution the endgame for literacy? Olivier Assayas asks all the right questions in the form of an erotic romp. Dig in. It's a bonbon spiked with wit and malice.

Non-Fiction is a mostly delightful, occasionally exhaustingly word-drunk comedy of manners larded with giddy farce.

What's oddly touching as the movie goes on is the sense that everyone must force themselves to operate in a cynical mode-in politics or publishing, people keep agreeing, integrity is an embarrassing irrelevance...

Somewhere under Non-Fiction's awkward shuffling is a cautionary tale about reading between the lines.
