Joachim, a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind – his children, friends, enemies, lovers and regrets – to start a new life in the United States. He comes back with a team of New Burlesque strip-tease performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris. Travelling from port to port, the curvaceous showgirls invent an extravagant fantasy world of warmth and hedonism, despite the constant round of impersonal hotels with their endless elevator music and the lack of money. The show gets an enthusiastic response from men and women alike. But their dream of a tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the theatre where they were due to perform. A quick return journey to the capital violently reopens old wounds.
I don’t really believe in male filmmakers who supposedly know what’s going on in - side women’s heads. Rather, let’s just embrace the fact that cinema allows us to waken the adolescent boy in us who fantasizes about girls’ bedrooms. (Mathieu Amalric)
