Movie Info

Based on the opera 'Rigoletto,' this is the story of a middle-aged corporate climber who has lost sight of his humanity. Rick is a cold, emotionless employee of the Image Company, a marketing firm situated in Manhattan's financial district. But Rick has another life, unknown to anyone at his company -- a seemingly quiet domestic arrangement with his teenage daughter, Eve. It is a secret he has kept well hidden from the pernicious confines of his workplace. But when his boss' wandering eye chances upon Eve, Rick must take a stand as a build-up of years of cynicism clash with paternal love.

  • By hewing so faithfully to their source, the creators don't let the material pursue its own direction, and the result feels dramatically arbitrary.

  • [The] story and emotions seem a little too big for the frame.

    Oct 15, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • An ill-advised combination of tragedy and satire, it generally plays like the coffee-break fantasy of a temp who messed up a lunch order and paid for it with his dignity.

  • Everything about this curio is claustrophobic.

  • Impressive -- and utterly depressing -- feature debut.

  • It's rotten to the core and right down to the end. But if you find that such extremes can be fascinating, then the movie may cheer you, not because it is happy, but because it goes for broke.
