One of Eustache’s most radical experiments, the formally and narratively transgressive A Dirty Story presents two versions of the same event, in which a group of women listen to a man describe his discovery of a peephole in a women’s restroom. One is a “true” monologue delivered by the actual participant (Eustache’s friend and collaborator Jean-Noël Picq); the other a staged recreation of Picq’s performance starring Michael Lonsdale. Further muddying the waters between documentary and fiction, Eustache preferred that the “fictional” version be shown first.
