Documentary based partially on the only filmed interview given by Louis Althusser in 1980 in Rome.
"Remarkable... Books, history, philosophy, personal life, mental illness, positions and influences... Nothing is forgotten in this portrait." —Télérama
"It's a rare thing that television dedicates a documentary to a philosopher. It is even rarer that TV produces a documentary dedicated to a Marxist philosopher ... ALTHUSSER is, in fact, less of a documentary on Althusser than it is a radiography of the "Althusser effect." —Article Regard
"Fascinating portrait of a Marxist philosopher who, before succumbing to mental illness, developed a vision that is now being revisited by those who challenge capitalism." —Philippe Sollers
"A remarkable film that paints in sharp brush strokes ... the intellectual journey of philosopher Louis Althusser." —France Inter (Radio)
