Confusing movie
28 July 2000 | by (Ghent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This is truly a strange movie. It features Tony Curtis as an inventor with a huge house, a butler and a busload of people staying over. One of the guest makes comments now and then using a closed circuit audio system, which is wired all through the house. Why he does this is never made clear. The inventor also has a son who does the strangest things, including sleeping with a woman I presume is the housekeeper.

Now, inventor curtis needs money and tries to sell his inventions. That's more or less the things I can make out of this confusing movie. The acting can best be described as 'experimental'. come to think of it, the whole movie is kind of an experiment: how long can you watch this movie for?
