Young Giulia is a rebel. She can't stand her conservative family and works in a professional live sex show with her partner. She wants to be an actress, so she invites the casting director to her show. She also travels around Rome.
The movie concerns one man's obsession and one woman's appetite, and the consequences of their ultimate meeting. A man (Rémi Martin) is entering the final stages of a love affair. His girlfriend tells him a tale of a woman (Christine Boisson), lurking of the streets of Paris in a search of men to conquer. The man, obsessed with this image of the woman, embarks on a quest. He enters a series of brief sexual encounters in hopes of finding her. His mind flows between fantasy and reality as he relives a lifetime of hapless affairs and one-night stands. One night, he attends a party in the projects when he comes face-to-face with the object of his obsession.Written by
This movie reminds me in some vague way of an American film called "Splendor" released about the same time. It's truly terrible; hopefully the director is out of business by now and back to waitering in Paris. The main male character, who barely utters a word, seems to represent a fat, sweaty Penis in the film, while the women are mostly strung-out whores all having sex with this same Penis, rambling on neurotically about their issues. Somehow, the "mechanics" of women is deeply intimated through all of this. I doubt any women would care for it, some men may enjoy the sex scenes. I would recommend turning it on if you're having insomnia.
