A tribute to the movies as both collective memory and living art form as told through the reminiscences of a 100-year-old wheel-chair bound gentleman named Simon. Cinema. He lives in a splendid chateau whose every inch overflows with cinemabilia. Monsieur Cinema hires a young attractive film student Camille to visit once a day for 101 days in order to hash over his sometimes muddled recollections of an illustrous career in every aspect of the film biz since movies began. As he reminisces, film clips, strategically placed photos and live visitors--film stars who discuss their own careers, comparing various characters, directors and scenes--illustrate his flights of fancy.
