I'm looking for a French (I think) movie about a guy who found a remote control which changes a normal door in a basement to door between different worlds. It is from '80 or '70 not sure. Does someone have any idea what is the name of this movie?
Sounds similar to the New Twilight Zone Episode "The World Next Door" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_Next_Door_(The_Twilight_Zone)), which was first broadcast on 10/18/86.
It starred Geroge Wendt (Norm from "Cheers") as an unsuccessful inventor who found a bolted door is his basaement. When he opened and passed through it, he entered the basement of a similar house in an alternate universe where gender roles were reversed and he was a successful inventor, as the alternate universe was technologically in the Victorian age and his inventions were viewed as state-of-the-art.
