The Story Of My Life (Mensonges et trahisons et plus si affinités)
Returning from the 2007 French Film Festival.

"When a celebrity figure publishes a book on their life, it’s often Raphael who's ghost-written it. The discreet author is better at telling stories about other peoples’ lives than his own.

But when he starts to laboriously prepare the autobiography of a French football star, Raphael discovers Claire, his first love, who’s currently living with the footballer. Finding himself torn between the woman he loves today, the woman he loved ten years ago, and the subject of his autobiography, over a few days Raphael will confront all the questions he has been carefully trying to avoid for years."
