Miss Monde 1984:[after a less-than-satisfying honeymoon with Mr. Kapital] I expected something else to happen.
PDG:Nonsense, he's the most powerful millionaire in the world!

Lawyer:Very dangerous, indeed.
Miss Monde 1984:This is insane!

Watch it, if you dare, 20 August 2004
Author: Cacus7 from San Antonio, TX, USA

This movie is not for the faint of heart. In fact, it seems as if the creators have done everything possible to make you abort viewing it before the last reel. The vast majority of people will find it offensive, disgusting, and vomit-inducing. I find it refreshing for that very fact.

"Sweet Movie" is a vehicle designed to elicit base reactions from the audience. While the plot is not coherent, the acting not ultimately believable, and the cinematography shaky at best, nevertheless the complete package is more than the sum of its parts. Especially for American audiences, I dare anyone to watch the entire movie without at least one genuine reaction of revulsion. And that makes it almost unique.
