Sex, drugs and architecture
27 June 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I had a lot of fun watching this story about adultery, an architectural project and drug dealing in Paris. The movie is uneven and silly at times, but overall it shouldn't be taken very seriously and also offers a couple of moderately successful erotic scenes. Great for late night video.
