Basically a film about corporate espionage with a kinky twist, Olivier Assayas' journey into Internet porn is more like email spam: It promises the world but really just wants to take your money. Connie Nielsen is a corporate mole attempting to mess with a deal between a French conglomerate and a Japanese anime firm, which manufactures salacious, 3-D porn.
While Nielsen can't determine the loyalties of her colleagues, the arrival of Gina Gershon from America only complicates things further. Is her presence real or imagined? Soon, it's tough not only to follow the corporate infighting but also the bedroom antics of these industrial spies. And when a story about a snuff site starts figuring in the equation, things go all out of whack. Yes, this is the kind of picture your mother warned you about--but only because it'll leave you snoring.
