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 »

Bhv, 16 July 2008
Author: dbdumonteil

This movie was the subject of countless jokes ,as was his director ,philosoph Bernard Henry Levy ("BHV").THe movie got unanimous thumbs down and artistically and commercially it was such a failure that BHV did not try again...probably wisely.

BHV had nevertheless a dream of a cast:his lady friend,Arielle Dombasle ,Alain Delon,Lauren Bacall and Bunuelian Francisco Rabal.The screenplay ,vaguely Hemingwayesque ,tells the story of a writer, a has been who lives in Mexico .Not exactly the "now that's what I call a screenplay" thing ,and the actors can't help it.

Mexico seaside is lovely.
