At July 30 DAS ERSTE shows at 10:45 p.m. in its "Sommerkino im Ersten" series, French cinema at its best: the MMC Movies co-production "Monsieur Pierre goes online"which was also shot in large parts at MMC Studios.
In the leading role turns out the incorrigible Pierre Richard ("The Tall Blonde with the Black Shoe") thanks to the reassuring anonymity of the Internet as a ravishing charmer and dates the young Flora (Fanny Valette). Since the latter does not know how old he is, the unsuccessful writer Alex (Yaniss Lespert) meet with Flora in Pierre's place.
The fact that Flora falls head over heels in love with Alex throws the situation into a bit of a tizzy. Pierre is sure that his verbal seduction has awakened Flora's feelings. But Alex's kisses can't have been entirely innocent either.
