Featuring previously unissued photographs and video archives as well as interviews of Robert Doisneau’s friends and partners in crime, the film tells how the kid from the poor suburbs turned superstar photographer. It draws the intimate portrait of the life and work – being so closely interwoven – of an artist fiercely determined to be a purveyor of happiness and a man who always regarded himself as an outsider, just like many of the people he photographed.
