Need to know the real characters to enjoy it!
8 February 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Actually, I enjoyed VERY much the film because it is all about Alexander Salkind and his wife's lives (Berta Dominguez). Had you had the chance to meet their incredible and surrealistic world (and lives), you could see how real this film is. Berta's role is played by herself, Parsifal (Tony Curtis) plays Alex's role; the housekeeper, the baron, are real life characters that used to hover about Berta's luxurious apartments in Paris. Christopher Chaplin plays Bertas real son, Ilya. Alex looking to raise money to produce his films. Berta with her younger lovers. The whole madness lived in their environment is very well represented in this film. Acknowledging that it was never meant to be released on cinemas, for family and personal reasons. And for the same reasons the credits show Cassandra Domenica instead of Berta Dominguez. I would love to see this film shown in cinema theatres, especially knowing it is the last film in which Orson Welles plays. Hector S. Peralta, Berta Dominguez's nephew.
