> Une sale Histoire 02

In Une Sale Histoire, Eustache's friend Jean Nöel-Picq tells the story, before an audience of several, mostly passive, spectators, of his discovery of a spy-hole from the men's bathroom into the women's at a Paris restaurant. He spares no detail in describing his addiction to this voyeuristic opportunity and the precise ritual involved. But then Eustache ?remade? his own film in a scripted, 35mm version, with the critic Jean Douchet as the ?director? and Michael Lonsdale plays Nöel-Picq in a nearly identical repetition of the first film.
