Storyline

In one week's time, a total eclipse of the sun will be visible from Toronto. Teenager Angelo is shooting a video documentary about eclipses for a school project. He speaks to several people, who, interviewed on camera, discuss several aspects of solar eclipses, most with the recurring theme of the magic and mysticism people feel associated to the event. In the course of the week, the approaching eclipse affects ten individuals sexually. The first two have a sexual encounter, followed by one moving onto a sexual encounter with another person, who moves onto another person and so on until the tenth comes full circle to have sex with the first person. These sexual encounters as a whole span the gamut of familiarity, emotional connectedness, and physical connectedness, but each has the common aspect of the participants not knowing quite why they felt the need to have that encounter, or at least not admitting it.

Pseudo-profoundaties with your softcore, sir?
18 August 2001 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

A dozen or so characters meet each other, speak pseudo-profound lines (Oh, she thought her father never really loved her!) and then pull their clothes off to engage in R-rated softcore sex, which is a little nudity here and there and a lot of huffing and puffing. It's all very fake-o film noir (or is it film sepiatone?), in which emotionless blank looks, staring into the sky, the twinkling lights of downtown at night, and characters pulling on cigarettes are passed off as a meaningful comment and reflection on the human and social condition.

Why bother? The screenplay doesn't have the chops to generate much interest, nor does the Cable-TV type sex.
