Runtime: 1 hour, 43 minutes
A philistine in the art film business, Jeremy Prokosch is a producer unhappy with the work of his director. Prokosch has hired Fritz Lang (as himself) to direct an adaptation of "The Odyssey," but when it seems that the legendary filmmaker is making a picture destined to bomb at the box office, he brings in a screenwriter to energize the script. The professional intersects with the personal when a rift develops between the writer and his wife.

Personally, I liked the hotel sequence in Before Midnight (for example) better content- or dialogue-wise than the apartment sequence in this film (although it is artistically much more complicated and fascinating in Le Mpris), because in that film the characters were actually graving deeper and deeper into their problems, while in this movie they merely scratched the surface at the end.
