France before 1789: When a widow hears that her lover is to marry her cousin's daughter, she asks the playboy Valmont to take the girl's virginity. But first she bets him, with her body as prize, to seduce a virtuous, young, married woman.
Set in modern day Buenos Aires, the film centers around a relationship between two emotionally crippled roommates. Adrian LeDuc is a lonely sociopath who is forced to rent his insane mother's room due to poor ticket sales at his revival movie theater. Jack Carney, the new roommate, appears normal enough at first but it soon becomes apparent that he is hiding something. As their friendship develops, Adrian suppresses his suspicions that Jack may be the government mercenary turned serial killer who has been terrorizing the city. The other eccentric residents of the building begin to worry as Adrian shows increasing signs that his mother's insanity may be hereditary. The shocking climax of this twisted tale of deceit, perversion and murder reveals the darker side of the human psyche.Written by
Hi, fellows. It´s great to read positive reviews on such peculiar film from the eighties. I watched it at the time on a video tape rented at a friend´s shop in La Lucila. She was smart to tip me as to our extremely local setting. Because, apart from all the achievements mentioned by other users, to me the moving thing about this moving picture is that the York has operated as a true cinema theatre for well over half a century in Olivos, next to a small lush square by the unfrequented Borges train station. Where us kids from the neighbourhood would go walking sunshine or rain to watch three films in a row. When my elder brothers first took me there, the way to the toilets was around a hen coop. Later in the seventies friendly ushers would let us pass to watch restricted films. To mention but a few films I saw there: The Wizard of Oz, You Only Live Twice, Cabaret, Julia, Yellow Submarine, Isadora. After staying closed for years following the theft of their projector in the eighties, in recent years the smallish York cinema house is owned and run by the Municipalidad de Vicente López and offers all films and live shows gratis.
