A hot young phone sex addict and his narcissistic opera diva mom. A dangerously agitated hustler and a half-dozen dangerously agitated hustlers who look just like him. A tittering neurotic who thinks she's Vanessa Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave herself. Pot brownies, puke jokes, a gay dad, a flying lesbian, Jerry Hall, a dead body and a fetish for Brian DePalma movies! Anchoring the mayhem is Elisabeth Beaumont, an American opera star visiting Paris to perform "Turandot" and dabble in some belated mothering of her 23 year-old son Thomas. Thomas doesn't need mothering; he needs some good hot manhandling. And, in the best DePalma tradition, the quest for sex leads to voyeurism and voyeurism, leads to murder. From there, it's just a short path to therapy. Unfortunately, the psychiatrist that Thomas visits is a little on the dead side herself, and a nutty patient has taken her place. Written by

This movie is a true original and very entertaining. We have not seen anything like it before and will probably not see anything like it again until the director makes his second film. Very well-acted, handsomely directed and shot, clever use of sets and costumes. Bulle Ogier is as good as in her films by Rivette, Bunuel, Fassbinder, Tanner, Schroeder and the great Werner S. Wiest, Birkin and Merhar are excellent.
Uproarious cameos by Vanessa Redgrave and Jerry Hall. If only Merchant-Ivory (the producers) would take risks like this more often!
