Do yourself a favor and see this movie. I commend Red Lats' review for realizing the film might be beyond him. In fact, it will seem strange to those who don't know about the sardonic Art Movement known as "Dada", which 1n 1929 (the timeframe of the film) was emerging into the highly sexualized and morality challenging Surrealistic movement. That unusual mixture of the self-questioning of Western Civilization while simultaneously exploring the Dionysian release into unbridled pleasure is the central point of the film. As for Fascade's review, the gentleman incorrectly states this is a college class. Pay more attention, my friend! It is a group of intellectuals, writers, and artists, funded by an eccentric but boorish entrepeneur which is led by a "former" college professor who got fired for having sex with his students (which makes him eminently qualified for this group). And he is not good at judging the skills of actors. Nick Nolte and Tuesday Weld's over the top performances are perfect for their characters, while the smoldering sexuality just below the surface of Neve Campbell's stenographer is done with subtlety and convincingly engaged in a struggle within the self. This movie demands FAR MORE from its audience than the typical American film, but believe me, it is well worth it.
