Storyline

A painter ('the artist') and a lounge-room singer ('the girl') continue a passionate lesbian love affair. 'The girl' is actually a high-class prostitute whose pimp ('the man') is putting the pressure on both women to end the relationship. Words like 'prostitute' and 'pimp' seem too harsh for the sexy-smooth atmosphere of this fascinating look at obsessive love. Written by k wedgwood

not worth your time
26 October 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

A strikingly bad movie. Poor plot, screenplay, acting, editing, etc. Even the sex scenes weren't very good; even though she is frequently squirming in bed with The Girl, you see nothing of the narrator below the shoulders (although The Girl is prominently displayed). You could say that the silence of the other characters was a plot device, but I suspect it was to save money (actors who speak have to be paid more). I saw it with a theater full of lesbians, and everyone was laughing at how stupid the lines and acting were.

Don't be fooled by the "USA" attribution, this is a typical French film - trying to put deep thoughts in a film with no plot development and one-dimensional characters. If you liked "Irma Vep", you'll love this.
