Hot whore has great legs but no heart. There is a lot of foot-licking, but things never get very steamy. Mostly revolutionaries talk and burst into odd musical interludes, The Mikado, mostly. The style seems a bit intriguing in the beginning, but the sex/politics allegory never really grabbed me.
The profane example "de passion" at the eve of the new century.A showcasing performance for Gil,Ripstein's possibly final so far artistic masochism,damn,there are references to wrestling and Franco altogether!Crazy innuendos but the result is quite extraordinary.
Amazing shots. The lighting was superb but the sets became a bit repetitive after 30 minutes. The story was interesting but the dialogues a bit too long to the point of having to fastforward a bit so I could still look at the picture without having to hear the sometimes boring dialogues. I didn't get the singing in the middle of the dialogues. It didn't strike me as a musical. Ripstein is a master of cinematography but his movies are sometimeas heavy.
Cinematography is fine, especially the choice of colors. Interestingly, secondary characters are more captivating than the protagonists. The logic linking the main themes: sex, communism, racism, power is unclear. And yee, it IS too long
