Trivia

Once notable in the mid to late '90s French adult film starlet Rebecca Lord was cast off the street when she was spotted by writer/director Caveh Zahedi. He breaks the fourth wall of film making to tell us the audience then until he further researched her stage name online that he personally had NO idea that she was a notable name in the adult film industry. Merely a very gorgeous woman. He also spotted her because of her Escorting dates that were listed on a website coincided with the re-shoot dates he was then planning to take place in San Francisco that she listed on a site. The film's subject was, oddly enough, about Mr. Zahedi's life-long personally addictions to Prostitutes (Escorts). See more »

Goofs

The Italian prostitute says her fee is "100,000 lira." "Lira" is the singular form (like "dollar"). She should have said "100,000 lire" (the correct plural form, like "dollars"). See more »

Self indulgent, but a fascinating psychological study
27 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously not a Hollywood, high-budget film, but if you can get past that it is really interesting. Yes, the Producer/Director/Writer/Star is being very self indulgent. Of course you learn from the film that he has always been that way. But this film is an outstanding a study of a male viewpoint of relationships and sex.

He repeatedly says that all he wants is someone he can be totally honest with, and he hears several women tell him they want that honesty. Of course the truth is that we only want our partners to be honest when it matches our own view of reality. When their truth conflicts with our view of reality we either try to argue them out of their truth or force them to deny it. In fact, as much as Caveh wants the freedom of being honest with his partners he never gives them that same freedom.

Don't rent this for the sex scenes and don't rent this for a great plot. But if you like psychological studies of relationships, this film is well worth the time and money.
