Obscure Document
29 December 2008 | by 1481010See all my reviews

An odd look into Parisian nightlife of the 1980s. I was expecting scenes from legendary club Le Palace and pre-HIV, coke-fueled debauchery, Karl Lagerfeld with a beard, etc. but it turned out to be more about sex shops, peep shows and 2am conversations with transvestites in the Bois de Boulogne. There are glimpses of an extinct side of Paris that is rarely documented - that age-old sleazy atmosphere mixed with a new-found modern lifestyle - but overall it's not very interesting. The story is insignificant. Appearances by Eva Ionesco (barely intelligible but funny) and Caroline Loeb (a 1980s pop singer with a strange grin).
