Storyline

A deadly thriller set in New Orleans, about a wealthy businessman, Charlie Le Blanc, who discovers that he only has a short time to live. As he prepares to will his fortune to his beautiful, adoring young wife, Lilly, he begins to wonder if she really deserves it. In order to test her loyalty, he befriends a handsome young man, Jimmy Mulate, and offers him $40,000 to tempt his wife. Jimmy refuses at first, until he meets Lilly, then he's hooked. He makes his play for her and she refuses; she really is loyal to her husband Charlie. But when Charlie's secretary tells Lilly about the scheme she becomes infuriated, invites Jimmy back to her house, and sleeps with him. Unbeknownst to the lovers, Charlie has had a surveillance expert wire the house, and now he knows everything. When Charlie confronts Jimmy and asks if he has anything to report, Jimmy says "no", because he has fallen in love with Lilly. He has now become a pawn in this deadly game between husband and wife. Charlie then ... Written by Ary Luiz Dalazen Jr. <ajr@fortalnet.com.br>

The Saturn Bar, NOLA
2 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this film, by chance, one lazy Saturday afternoon, while just "couch-potatoing/channel surfing"...glad I was...

Being from The Big EZ, it peaked my interest, not to mention the very colorful array of characters! Now... here's the thing: There was a scene in this movie, where Lily & Mulate meet up at a bar, called "The Saturn Bar"; I happen to know exactly where this bar is located within the 7th Ward of New Orleans.

What I want to know is if that scene was actually filmed at that location, or was it simply a shot from the outside and filmed another location? Does anyone know? Just curious.

Aside from that, I think I'll purchase the DVD to add to my New Orleans Colllection of videos. Really steamy and intriguing..

~Robin~

OH.. & P.S.: It held my attention, surprisingly, all the way to the end! It was Good.
