Sigrid La Chapelle,
In a stunning modern Spanish Villa lives Bill (Iggy Pop) an aging, half-blind rock star with his young, very beautiful and sexually promiscuous wife Isabelle (Kacey Barnfield). Into their Ibizan paradise comes Lucas (Ben Lamb), an ex-lover looking for revenge. Lucas wants his inheritance back; he believes she stole it from him, but Isabelle will give him nothing. Bill asks Lucas to stay and to make peace with Isabelle, but really he has another agenda - he has a plan... Meanwhile, Lucas is already torn up inside with the desire for revenge, and when he sees how Isabelle is having one of her flings with David their Spanish 'pool boy' he sees an opportunity to turn the tables and things spiral dangerously out of control.
First off, let me say both my husband and I are big Iggy Pop fans. So when we first heard about this film months ago, we got excited for it to come out. I pre-ordered a copy on Amazon.
Fans or not, no one can say Iggy Pop didn't do a spectacular job as Bill. He was PERFECT for the part. So many times he made us chuckle. Bill was cool. Intelligent. Cunning. Sexy.
Ben Lamb, Kacey Clark, and Antonio Magro were all believable, too, playing their characters well. The heat from Kacey radiated from the screen, and the relationship between her and Bill was nuanced and enticing.Their appreciation of who each other was is something I particularly enjoyed, it made me really feel they "got" each other.
The movie drew us in right away, and the tension built slowly, seductively, drawing us in even further. Very noir atmosphere.
I will watch it more than a couple times. Thank you for making this film.
