Claire BARRÉ
Si Baudelaire revenait parmi nous, serait-il obligé d'écrire pour TF1 ?
Depressed and ill-adapted to the modern world, a young woman signs a pact with the devil. This pact allows her to travel through time to meet the poets she cherishes, who she has fun seducing in a form of sexual-temporal tourism (taking Gilbert-Lecomte's virginity, having a threesome with Verlaine and Rimbaud on the day the former wounded the latter in a spat...). But the consequences of these travels become more and more unpredictable, driving her to the edge of madness. She changes the terms of her pact and asks for inspiration to write a masterpiece. An aggressive and cumbersome Muse moves into her place?none other than Charles Baudelaire. They make a hilarious duo, with poor Baudelaire having his poetry refused by publishers as he discovers Bret Easton Ellis, Anthony Burgess, Chuck Palahniuk, Charles Bukowski...
