Plot & Details

The border between professional and personal relationships comes under fire in this independent drama. Michael (Martin Donovan) is a filmmaker whose last project featured a beautiful actress named Anna (Irène Jacob). While Michael is trying to work on his next screenplay, he can't get Anna out of his mind, and obsessively watches outtakes from her scenes. Deeply infatuated and desperate for a reason to speak to her, Michael calls Anna and asks is she can help with his script -- he's having some trouble with dialogue and it would help if he could have an actress read the lines with him. Anna agrees, but as she keeps returning to "assist" Michael with his project, he writes more and more of what he wants to hear her say, and his pretense of working on a film begins to melt away. A prizewinner at the Avignon Film Festival, The Pornographer (a love story) also features cameo appearances from Maggie Gyllenhaal and Laura Prepon.
