Irma Vep is a film full of chaos, which at times entertains and at times makes you wonder what it's all about.

An arguably brilliant film with the noncontradictory potential to bore half its intended audience and enchant the other half.

One of the few movies about making movies that captures the kinetic madness of the process. Maggie Cheung, playing herself, floats like a bemused Buddha through the maelstrom, offering a welcome sense of grace and normalcy.
