Storyline

Dan Gillis, an American screenwriter living in Paris, recently abandoned by his wife, and getting used to his new life as a bachelor while trying to take care of his son, Danny - is commissioned to write a script. The offer comes from Legrand, a successful producer with whom he has worked in the past, but on this occasion he is being asked to write an unconventional story with Malcolm, a young and unknown film director. Dan is undecided about the offer, seeing it as far from the kind of work he has grown used to, but Legrands insistence and the intrigue personality of the young director finally convince him to accept the work despite the reticence of Marilyn, his beautiful but disabled agent. As he starts to work, Dan discovers that there is more at stake than just a movie. His life will be changed as he immerses himself in the closed universe of incestuous relations surrounding Malcolm and his beautiful young sister Jenny, with whom Dan soon becomes obsessed. Dans infatuation with ... Written by Anonymous

Bad movies can also be made with a small budget
3 April 2005 | by (Holland) – See all my reviews

Jeff Goldblum is a good actor. He has his typical way and sure enough this movie demonstrates his skills. However, the script is not well made. There is some interesting dialog, but there are many parts that should have been explained in more detail. The Paris scenery hadn't been used to an advantage; it could have taken place in any other city. The rest of the cast was simply poor; it explains why the other actors never hit it big. The worst part of the movie is the story itself; it's quite boring and one had wished a point or moral question would be addressed. The music was very wrong as well. It was out dated, even for 1980, and bad timing. The whole movie fails miserably in delivering a message or story telling. They posted this movie as a thriller, which puts the viewer in a wrong state of mind. It definitely was not worth my time. I voted 3/10.
