Director Jean Rouch sends his African friends to investigate Paris and its inhabitants. With an ironic, sharp, and piercing ethnographic approach, Rouch turns the traditional subject to a facetious, cunning, uninhibited, and merciless investigator in front of his case studies, who are revealed in all their fragile humanity. The result: Paris, France, the French, cinema, and man-as-man are rediscovered in one of the funniest and smartest films in the history of cinema.
