Elizabeth Lee Miller,
Nina, a young girl staying in the French countryside with her aunt and father is living in a world which is contaminated, literally and figuratively. It is always a mystery when you do not understand your place in this world.
In a Polish sports center a man tells his friend about an odd dream, which begins an unusual reaction in which many member of the sports club begin recounting similar dreams with only slight deviations.
A guy has just crashed his motorcycle so he goes to a dive bar and drinks himself silly. A woman there picks him up, takes him home, chains him to the bed and steals his money for heroin. He falls in love with her and you'll never guess what happens next. Actually, you will.
In addition to an utterly predictable story line, this movie features bad acting by disturbingly hirsute, unattractive (physically and otherwise) people playing unlikable characters. Other pluses include horrible porno-quality music and long, nausea-inducing sex scenes.
So was there anything actually good about this movie? Maybe. The interiors captured the feel of punk life in the 1970's, but the movie was made in 1996 and my copy gives a release date of 2001; there is no indication in the movie that it is a period piece. And I watched it at about 6am after staying up all night watching the first two Underworld epics. It did a much better job of keeping me awake than either one of those. So I guess that's a good thing.
