Stefan, a recent college graduate, hitchhikes from Germany to Paris where he meets American expatriate, Estelle. They chase the sun to Ibiza. An idyllic island life degenerates when she introduces him to heroin and they get addicted.
The eccentric professor Oscar Collins lives completely secluded in his chaotic apartment. When a model (Penny Lane) and her photographer boyfriend move in next to him, he becomes fascinated with her. He drills holes in the walls and ceiling and peeps on her day and night. He loses himself in daydreams and delusions.Written by

Virtually all the soundtrack music was instrumental, with only occasional voices (and those slowed down, or in a foreign language). One lyrical song, "In The First Place", was recorded but not submitted; George Harrison didn't think it would suit Joe Massot. Harrison was mistaken, as it turned out; when the record turned up as the movie was being restored, Massot happily added it to the soundtrack, and a single was belatedly issued. Harrison was pleased to see the record come out, having learned that former Remo Four member Colin Manley was suffering from cancer, and the royalty payments would help with his bills. (Manley died in April 1999.) See more »
I like George (may his soul play ukulele in heaven), and I like Jane Birkin (may that shadow of Serge Gainsbourg continue to dance with Beck). But to paraphrase Beck, Wonderwall's a loser, baby, why don't you kill it? And, for God's sake what did the pictures of the Beatles at the end have to do with the film? The guy that plays the professor is somewhat humorous in a Charlie Chaplin sort of way (or that guy in silent films who used to hang onto clock towers and things). All in all a tête à tête between Harrison and Birkin on their philosophies of life may have made an interesting movie. Probably much better than My Dinner with Andre. My Dinner with a Dish?
