Joachim, a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind - his children, friends, enemies, lovers and regrets - to start a new life in America. He comes back with a team of New burlesque strip-tease performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris! Traveling from port to port, the curvaceous showgirls invent an extravagant fantasy world of warmth and hedonism, despite the constant round of impersonal hotels with their endless elevator music and the lack of money. The show gets an enthusiastic response from men and women alike. But their dream of a tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the theatre where they were due to perform. A quick return journey to the capital violently reopens old wounds...Written by
In my private opinion, it's one case that the trailer have ALL the good scenes of the movie. The impression is the original intention it was create sketches, improvising, in a "documentary" style, but it didn't work. My impression was the movie is a a bunch of situations that hardly interact with each other. Many times they do not make sense, looking like a desperate attempt to "avoid clichés", with unexpected reactions, but it didn't work, the result is not coherent.
I love french movies, the subject - burlesque performers - is very interesting, but this one was very disappointing.
