Storyline

In Lyon, where many are unemployed, Marie is a prostitute who loves her work: she's thoughtful and exuberant toward clients old and young, slim or flabby. One night, a homeless man sleeps in the foyer of her apartment house; she gives him a hot meal, then a place on the floor to sleep by her radiator, then she offers herself. She falls in love, giving him new life, clothes, a place to live. When he grouses that he must bar hop while she uses the flat for her work, she finds them a larger flat. He grows restless, seducing a manicurist and pressing her to prostitution. He's arrested for procuring, so Marie must decide what to do; he, too, must face the consequences of his choices.

Talents of some fine actors wasted here.
28 November 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A strange mixture of a film which involves pimps,prostitution and whoring as a profession and way of life. Basically a comedy it does put some serious questions about unemployment and job searching in a world that doesn't seem to care anymore. Beautiful Marie, a hooker, invites a scruffy homeless starving beggar into her luxurious apartment and gives him a meal of lamb stew and red wine and a liberal helping of sex for dessert (Can you believe it?) When Marie grows weary of her life of sex. she approaches Jean-Francois a total stranger and begs him to give her two children ( I ask you!) Individual acting is good but so wasted on a silly script. Handsome Olivier Martinez as Jean-Francois gives the film a nice lift in his too few scenes. I especially liked the "Begging" scene in which he pushes forward against a surging stream of pedestrians. (Some real cinema at last) I must also mention the cuckoo clock scene. When the beggar (who is trained as a pimp) is released from jail he is approached by a sex-hungry woman who takes him to her home for coffee. In her kitchen he is startled by her cuckoo clock which he promptly smashes to pieces. Now...is this supposed to be exciting cinema? The French can do better than this!!!
