A French author who fled to Mexico for a quiet life and an actress who is willing to seduce him to get a part in a film adapted from one of his books.
When the film premiered at the 47th Berlin International Film Festival in 1997, hundreds of journalists walked out of the screening and those that stayed audibly ridiculed the film. Day and Night (1997) was considered the worst French film since 1945 by Cahiers du cinéma, and considered as a possible "worst film in history" by the French version of Slate. Variety claimed that the film was, "Laugh-out-loud awful without touching the cult realm of "so bad it's good". Françoise Giroud stated "It's a bad movie, there's no question", and L'Humanité called it an "Absolute debacle".
