Storyline

In a Paris cemetery, a handcuffed prisoner grieves at the grave of his sister Andy. In flashbacks, we see what happened. He's arrested for smuggling an Ecstacy-like drug; to get money to help him, Andy takes a job in a mysterious call-girl ring run by the wealthy and secretive March. She's goes to the American embassy for help as well, and she's assisted by Stanley Esher, a nerdy but competent bureaucrat. To train for the sex ring, Andy is taught by a blind masseur and advised by Helga, the friend who recruited her. There's also the drug, which can be stored in temporary tooth caps, released with a bite, and passed on with a kiss. Andy tries to outwit March, but the cemetery awaits.

Not bad, but not much
19 October 1999 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

This was slightly better than I had anticipated, but the basic plot was a little too routine for my tastes. Individual scenes were often unusual, and this helped to keep me interested, but most of the central developments were obvious and they kept my enjoyment of the movie at a minimum. This movie was certainly a decent time killer, but with a story this routine, I would need some good comedy or exciting action in order to overlook the standard plot.
