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

That about sums it up. Bathers is interesting for the first 10 minutes or so... but it's soon apparent this is a very static, repetitive story. The girls dance, the girls talk, the girls dance, the girls talk. It's like the cinematic equivalent of a really bad, too-long disco song. For some, seeing nekkid women may be entertaining enough, but The Bathers just goes nowhere. Some of the acting and dialogue is fairly good, though.
