Storyline

"Kissing Metal" is the story of Philippe, a down and out European film producer, who lives in a tent in the shadow of his unfinished house in Brentwood. Philippe is struggling to sell a film he made five years ago to foreign distributors. Nearly broke, and on the verge of eviction, he seeks spiritual help from Master Atchoum, a Buddhist Guru. Master Atchoum pushes him into practicing Buddhism and convinces him to buy an expensive metal sculpture of Buddha. Empowered by the support of his new-found "religion," Philippe starts turning things around. Through a series of serendipitous events...and some very unorthodox maneuvering, he becomes a success. But, he soon discovers that all is not what it appears to be... Written by Anonymous

A documentary-film
6 October 2004 | by (Losangeles) – See all my reviews

If you want to know about foreigners in Hollywood, about how difficult it is to produce and make movies and the power of movies stars here please check out this movie.] Music is quite exciting. Most people wonder if it is a film, a documentary, if everything is true, if everything is not true, our mind works during this movie, yet it is entertaining. I have seen it yesterday and I believe it is quite accurate in anyone interested in the film-making process and Hollywood and keeping the dream alive. Bravo fellow French man in Hollywood.
