Storyline

In London's contemporary art world, everyone has a hustle. Art Spindle runs a high-end gallery: he hopes to flip a Mondrian for millions. One of his assistants, Beth, is sleeping with Art's most acquisitive client, Bob Macclestone. Beth wants Bob to set her up in her own gallery, so she helps him go behind Art's back for the Mondrian. Bob's wife, Jean, sets her eye on a young conceptual artist, Jo, who lusts after Art's newest assistant, Paige. Meanwhile, self-absorbed lesbian videographer Elaine is chewing her way through friends and lovers looking to make it: if she'll throw Dewey, her agent, under the bus, Beth may give her a show. And the Mondrian? No honor among thieves. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Mildly Pornographic and Not Funny
31 December 2011 | by graham-ashbySee all my reviews

I couldn't finish this. I was expecting a comedy, but not a single titter.

The plot seems to involve getting a Mondrian from an older couple who need the money, but that seems to be it, apart from some rambling character development. But there's not much development, and not much of a plot.

But there is Sex. Lots of it. Crotch shots; innuendo; sex toys, lesbian action. However, given the calibre of actors involved, not quite what I had in mind.

So, a waste of time really. Wasted acting, and definitely no laughs.
