Movie Info

In an unnamed city, Madame Irma (Shelley Winters) runs a brothel where people explore role-playing and other sexual fantasies. When her police chief lover (Peter Falk) arrives, she learns that a violent revolution is brewing outside and many of the country's leaders have been killed in the uprising. Soon, the brothel's customers and employees are forced to take to the city streets in costume and impersonate the slain leaders in order to help restore sanity.

  • Jan 08, 2009
    Strange, muddled film, very existential. The question would be, even with talented performers like Winters, Falk and Grant, who was film made for?
