Put together a handsome 23-year-old with a penchant for personal ads (Stanislav Merhar), his opera-diva mother (Dianne Wiest at her glorious best), her impeccable friend (the splendid Bulle Ogier), an enigmatically odd actress (the intriguingly skittish Jane Birkin), a few rent boys and Vanessa Redgrave. Add a good dose of narcissism, a little murder and a lost father. Mix with a great eye for visuals (the inimitable Paris as a backdrop), a wonderful soundtrack (from pop to Turandot) and a whimsical homage to film and celebrity. Mix together with a talent for plotting, and you have the marvellous Merci Dr. Rey.
