As a wild alternative, Guillaume Nicloux's work of complete fiction starring Houellebecq himself playfully speculates on the reason for the mysterious disappearance. This highly entertaining, farcical piece of cinema parallels the wry characteristics of its unique and ever-unconventional subject. |Read More
