An alien race attempting to gain a greater understanding of mankind focus their studies on a temperamental painter and a brooding musician in speculative sci-fi author-turned-filmmaker Bernard Werber's ambitious sci-fi mockumentary. Fascinated by the human creature and determined to gain a greater understanding of their life cycle, curious extraterrestrials plant hidden cameras all throughout modern-day Paris. The discoveries they make are sometimes poignant, and sometimes hilarious. In order to truly understand how the human mind works, however, the aliens will need to procure two test subjects - one of each gender. Placed together in a clear plastic cage suspended in darkness, Agathe (Audrey Dana) rails against her captivity as dejected Bertrand (Boris Ventura) exhibits a more subdued malaise. One by one, a serious of everyday objects are added to the cage so that the interstellar observers may take note of how each item is used by the humans. Meanwhile, back on planet Earth, Agathe and Bertrand's spouses make a connection as curious aliens observe quietly from afar. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
