Antoine and Remi have been living together for more than three years. Remi films their life with the aid of a Super 8 camera. One day, he finds himself thinking: "there's no longer any desire between us…" Maybe he's inventing problems so as to turn his life into a real film… How can he make desire ignite from the ashes? By creating an obstacle? Finding a lover? And what if the camera becomes the obstacle in the new couple, between Remi and his new lover?
“Les Yeux brouillés,” like my first film, “Omelette,” is comprised of both real-life scenes and reconstructed, acted ones. It’s a film to be taken with irony – a few film critics though I was really the manipulative freak described in the film, that I was really doing some self-analysis. The film’s two-bit psychoanalysis and simplistic comments on movies are all deliberate, of course. It’s not me who’s really speaking – after all, John Wayne didn’t really kill those nasty Indians! Whereas this film is humorous, the next one will be even more so, I hope, a real comedy.
