Confused, non-linear film tells the sexual story of a film director from his life at age 5, age 12, age 16, a man embarking on his first film in 1950's Tunisia, and finally to his current life. Along the way he has sexual exploits with an older woman as a teen, gets involved with an Italian couple Tunisia that culminates in the killing of a local boy and the brutal revenge murder of the woman, and ultimately is married to a cold woman.

A set of confusing and never settled situations, some connected, some don't. The unpleasant long lasting black screen that I actually hate, are as often as never before in Mike Figgis movies. The editing of unrelated images/situations I never understood at all. I have loved some Mike Figgis movies ("One Night Stand", "Leaving Las Vegas", "Internal Affairs") but I think that in this one there was a loss of movie making essence, or at least I didn't get it AT ALL.
