Four prostitutes attend a politician's party
28 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was advertised as an adaption of a stage play and a comedy. Unfortunately it is anything but funny, no laugh in sight. What may have been tentatively amusing on stage turns out to be sour, pointless and boring on celluloid. I cringed at the self-prostitution of the actors, unbelievable that a Michael York participated! The unfunny atmosphere saw to it that the negative view the film has regarding the whores' customers multiplied beyond reason. Thus whoever made it appears to hate men, portraying them in the most sordid of circumstances seems to be the sole point.
