Worth seeking out for fans of its stars
22 April 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In this movie, Terence Stamp plays a film director who has scored a tremendous hit with his first film. But after that early success he finds himself depressed and lacking in ideas for a new project. Since the film was made during a low point in his own career, it is possible to imagine that Mr.Stamp found some resonance in the character he plays to himself and his own career. Certainly, fans can amuse themselves by spotting (presumably, unintentional) self-references in the dialogue to movie-making and the state of mind of those who make them. Corinne Clery, in one of her earliest roles, does a fine job playing an out of work actress who sparks Stamp's imagination.

It's a long way from being a masterpiece but it will maintain the interest of its stars' fans if not of a wider audience.
