This is an incredibly odd film that basically occupies itself with
contradicting everything you might expect. From the narrative structure
of the film itself, down to the smallest details. A little girl's name
is Reality yet she experiences things that can't possibly happen like
seeing a videotape come out of a boar's stomach or her mother reading
her a bedtime story that exactly recounts what happened to her that
day. A cooking show host wears a rat costume (hygiene?), a french
speaking producer has an American name (Bob Marshall), a starting
director pitches the worst idea for a movie ever and says it took him
four years to come up with it and the producer likes it but focuses on
a very small detail. The movie is build on these types of
contradictions, leading to funny scenes (the smoking scene is
hilarious), but often to just plain absurdity.
Because the narrative structure of the movie itself is contradictory to what you as a viewer expect from a movie the whole thing stays enjoyable, literally anything can happen. In the end everything sort of works out and the story lines are tied in with each other in a way that makes sense. Not 'real' sense, but within the movie's logic (or lack thereof). I agree with another reviewer that one can't really compare this movie to anything else (maybe Dupieux earlier film Wrong), which makes grading it a tad difficult. On the whole I found it an incredibly amusing experience, though I can understand that other people might not. But if you are open minded about movies...
Step into the world of Realité, in which secretaries are creepy, you can go into work and discover that you are already there and if you decline a cigarette because you don't smoke, you will get one forced on you.

A wanna-be director is given 48 hours by a producer to find the best groan of pain, worthy of an Oscar, as the only condition to back his film.
