Irma Vep

Unfocussed Look at French Film-Making

(Edit) 20/10/2008

Irma Vep (an anagram of vampire) is a fairly enjoyable, if slightly plotless, film about the making of the titular movie. Playing like a home movie, it shows a slightly bewildered Maggie Cheung trying to cope with a director who's having a nervous breakdown as well as lesbian love interest.

The film seems to suggest French film-making has reached the end of its tether. The director has run out of ideas and seems to be re-making an old movie mainly for the pleasure of seeing Maggie in a tight-fitting latex outfit. Unfortunately, Irma Vep itself, seems a bit too pre-occupied with the latex-clad Maggie Cheung, although anyone who shares this fetish should be well-pleased.
