Goofs:
Anachronisms: The end of the movie is supposed to take place after Nathalie is released from prison, several years after the main plot takes place. Yet the movies advertised on the advertisement pillar in the background (See Spot Run (2001), Town & Country (2001)) were released in France around the same weeks as the movies referenced in the main plot's time frame (Sleepwalker (2000) etc.).See more »
Quotes:
Sandrine:What do you feel dancing naked with all those people watching?
Nathalie:Nothing.
Sandrine:But you excite them.
Nathalie:Usually it's routine.
Sandrine:Usually?
Nathalie:On stage once, I came the hardest I ever had.
Sandrine:Even with a guy?
Nathalie:That night I came the hardest I ever had.
Sandrine:Why?
Nathalie:Because people were watching.

Fabulously Twisted, 8 October 2003
Author: themarina1 from Vancouver, BC

I saw this with nearly 300 of my closest, smelliest friends (big festival venues really bite). Thankfully, the film was so outstanding that I managed to survive the awful smells. Where to begin? This film is outstanding from beginning to end. Take out all of the sex and you have a daring look at the struggle for class and power. This film DOES have everything. It's smart, beautiful, funny and it's one of the few films that will make you blush. I can't recommend this enough. If you have the opportunity to see it, do. You won't regret it.
