An exquisitely composed yet fiercely combative satire (set in the eighties) of European mores as seen through the eyes of two young exemplars of the American establishment.

This is fairly amusing stuff-brittle, fresh, and impudent - if you can stomach all the upscale arrogance.

A remarkable find: The film doesn't stop at getting your attention, it rewards it.

Ted and Fred may finally leave you not caring about Stillman's protagonists -- not so much ugly Americans as mildly unpleasant Americans.
