Storyline

Sexy, gritty and as provocative as a lap dance, The Bathers takes an insider's look at the lives of six women working as dancers at a seedy Parisian peep show. Governed by their overprotective boss, the girls' routine of glittery neon lights and lecherous customers is soon disrupted when an enigmatic stranger enters the scene. Now, drugs, sex and bickering all take a back seat as the girls unite to save this man haunted by a mysterious past and unforgiving demons. A fascinating glimpse into a world of back alleys and primal instincts, The Bathers transports us to a netherworld where the show always goes on. Written by Anonymous

well done ambiance movie, behind the doors of a sex-shop
16 June 2005 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

The director shows a clear talent to create atmospheres, and develop a narrative out of what -at first- seems desperately casual. The whole movie is shot behind the doors of a sex-shop, except a few scenes. You are taken into a theatrical universe, where different streams collapse : the everyday life of the strippers coming to work, the strip-show and video rooms in the back of the shop, the front shop and the "customers" stepping in. All these are intermingled in the eye of the camera: the shop labyrinthal architecture (dressing rooms, cabinets, closets, corridors, mirror rooms); the showrooms exiguity (mirrored circular stages surrounded by private cabinets, pay-time shutters); the sexy videos and video-surveillance play-back... The director manages an absorbing, dark reverie. The acting is quite good. The "overdosed" character, played by Michel Kalfon, finally opens a way to dream and hallucination into the whole picture. Well done. 7/10
