Paparazzi is a 1998 French comedy film, directed by Alain Berbérian.


Franck Bordoni (Patrick Timsit) loses job as a night watchman when he finds himself inadvertently on the front cover of a popular magazine. The photograph was taken while he was enjoying a football match instead of working. Deciding to punish the photographer, Franck visits the magazine’s offices and finds Michel Verdier (Vincent Lindon), a member of the paparazzi pack. Franck clings to Michel, and fascinated by work and eager to serve as an apprentice. Franck immerses himself in exciting new life (and Isabelle Adjani’s dustbins), however he hardly notices former life (including wife and son) disappear.
