The first live Cactus performance in over 30 years was greeted by a wildly enthusiastic New York City audience. Filmed at B.B.King's Blues Club in Times Square, the hard driving, boogie based, blues rock band took control of the stage from the first note, and never released their grip.

It's strange to see Clovis Cornillac in a selection of suits and ties, living in an ultra modern and pristine apartment and enjoying a lifestyle that includes a classy girlfriend, Alice Taglioni, and allows him to take expensive vacations seemingly at will. He's also saddled with a friend, Pascal Elbe, who has made hypochondria into an art form and, in one of the most tired devices known to hack writers, overhears a doctor talking about the cactus plant in his office and assumes the doctor is discussing him. Elbe is an expressive actor and had a hand in writing Pere et Fils, a vehicle for Philippe Noiret which also featured Charles Berling but Jean-Pierre Darroussin is completely wasted though Pierre Richard fares better as a sort of Maharishi left over from the sixties with few gullible Mia Farrows and/or Beatles left to con.
