Storyline

Paris, 1969. The filming of a sci-fi movie set in the distant year 2000 is in trouble. The director's obsession with the actress who plays the sexy secret agent Dragonfly has clouded his judgment and the film has no ending. A young American, in Paris to document his life on film with total honesty, is brought in to finish the movie with a bang. This proves to be difficult when the line between his fantasy life and reality becomes blurred, and he finds himself seduced by the charms of Dragonfly. Written by Kimberly

Trivia

Gérard Depardieu received an Oscar nomination, and several European film awards, for his portrayal of Cyrano de Bergerac (1990), a role that had already earned an Oscar for Jose Ferrer four decades before. This made them the second pair of actors to both receive Oscar nominations for playing the same part in different languages. The first pair were Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro in the first two Godfather films, directed by Roman Coppola's father, Francis Ford Coppola. See more »

Goofs

During the chase scene, Dragonfly scrapes and destroys almost all of the rear left-side "winglet" on the white sports car she is driving, yet in the next shot, the winglet is seen to be completely intact and undamaged. See more »

One of the worst films I've ever seen.
5 February 2004 | by kdmagnussonSee all my reviews

CQ could have been good, campy fun. But it commits the only unforgivable sin: it is b-o-r-i-n-g! The pace is deadly slow and the plot is fairly confused and so artificial that it's next to impossible to care where it's going. The story would have been acceptable in a creative writing class from a thoughtful and sensitive eighth grader but this video should have carried a warning label: "CAUTION: Student film. Fit for viewing only by relatives of the film maker."
