Pierre Loti, un homme du monde


France- 2011-52 min
Réalisation : Didier Roten et François Vivier
Production : Anekdota Productions/ France Télévisions.

The bust of Pierre Loti, erected more than 70 years ago in Papeete has been thrown into the Fautaua River… Who
still knows about the work and life of Pierre Loti today, his enthusiastic interest for countries other than his own, distant horizons and foreign cultures? Far from being a cliché, this portrait allows us to understand how, given the period, he was brought to create images of an exoticism which certainly characterise nuanced thinking.
