Erotic anthology mini-series about Americans in Paris turned TV movie that consists of three unrelated episodes each created by different notable director and cast. The mini-series/TV movie was followed by a short lived TV series.
Three provocative short stories. An American in Paris seduces a young man only to have the tables turned; a tourist recovering from an accident is alone but far from lonely; and an exchange student decides to intervene when he sees the woman in the opposite apartment being tied, gagged and beaten by her lover.Written by
Official HBO press release promoted the series as "adult dramas focusing on the unexpected and often dangerous consequences when people stray from the familiar confines of home in search of passion and excitement." See more »
This combination of short stories has some actors I really like in some unusual plot situations. The work seems to be intent upon provoking thoughts regarding the nature of relationships and non-relationships and is centered around passionate encounters of varying levels of eroticism. Each piece left me feeling as though I had merely experienced an incomplete thought with a little bit of almost unnecessary voyeurism thrown in. I say nice try, but no significant thrills or thoughts came out of the time spent watching this movie. Maybe a single movie should have been woven using all of these actors togetherin chance encounters!
