In the very last scene of the movie, Sonia (Lauren Bacall) is in Alexandre's study. On the desk, one can see in evidence the book "Orson Welles - The Road to Xanadu" written by Simon Callow.See more »

A must see, 7 September 2009
Author: Corgol from France

This is THE crappiest movie I have ever seen, there is NOTHING good : script, shooting, editing, actors, it's a TOTAL DISASTER! The style is so ridiculous going into vulgarity with ugly sex scene, there is so many wrong cuts and so many many many wrong things in all domains, it became a "must see" to laugh or to learn what you have not to do in a movie. Of course this movie was subsidized by CCF (french cinematographic center) with french people money : CCF give 1.700.000$ in advance to BHL who had no exp and no previous work in movie-making, not even a short! Usually best french director have 280.000 to 420.000$ in advance. where is the error? (wellcome in french production) The funniest thing : this movie makes 70.000 spectators, BHL the director said " I saw too high, I saw too big and the public couldn't follow me"... yea, yea, we can't follow you in so much deep craps. This man, BHL, self-proclaimed philosopher/dramatist/reporter/writer/director, is born fantastically wealthy and inherit a$ fortune made by cutting billions amazonian and African trees so, next time, I hope he will pay his dirty fantasy with his own dirty money
