Paris, 1982. Franck and Serge are policemen, in charge of an unusual mission. In order to infiltrate a local crime organization, they take over a strip club in Montmartre. However the debts of the business are such that they decide to enter the porn industry. But their artistic temperament is restless and they seem to have hidden talents, so they start shooting films adding their own touch, just like the auteurs they didn’t know they were.

Best friends and collaborators Guillaume Canet and Gilles Lelouche star in the retrosexual crime comedy by Cedric Anger, an unapologizing film which plays in a fun way with various genres and makes porn take another step towards art cinema. N.S.
