Movie Info

Juliette Binoche and Guillame Canet reunite with acclaimed director Olivier Assayas for this wry, slyly seductive tale of sex, lies, and literature. Set amidst the bohemian intelligentsia of the Parisian publishing world, Non-Fiction traces the romantic and emotional fallout that results when a controversial writer begins blurring the line between fact and fiction, using his real-life love affairs -- including a passionate fling with an actress who happens to be married to his editor -- as fodder for his explosive new novel. Balancing dry wit with keen observations on the tensions between art, commerce, and technology, Non-Fiction is a buoyant, breezy delight from a master director at his most effortlessly brilliant.

Critic Reviews for Non-Fiction (Doubles vies)

All Critics (141) | Top Critics (28)

It sounds farcical, but it's also a serious work from the writer-director Olivier Assayas and his key performers that interrogates the nature of literary value today through the words of uncommonly rounded and deeply appealing characters.

A meal made up of nothing but appetisers.

October 16, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Olivier Assayas is treading water with this amiable but self-indulgent and finally negligible movie about intrigue and adulterous goings-on in the publishing world of Paris.

It's maybe not going to sit near the top of the director's canon, but it's a nice addition to it.

October 14, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Writer-director Olivier Assayas goes looking for one real thing amid a group of French sophisticates who deal in artifice, both as a way of making a living and (with one possible exception) as a way of life.

June 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

In barely disguised code, "Non-Fiction" operates as a wry analysis of Assayas' chosen profession as filmmaker.
