Synopsis
This French drama uses two plots that occasionally come together. The stories are set within the multi-ethnic neighborhoods of Paris. In the first, Daiga, a spunky Lithuanian actress drives into to town to collect on the promise of a director she slept with. He lied to her and now she, who speaks no French, must accept help from friends and relatives who set her up in a small hotel. She gets a job as a chambermaid. The second examines the lives of a large expatriate Caribbean family. Theo a musician, takes small carpentry jobs for wealthy Parisians to support his young daughter. He really wants to go home to Martinique, but his daughter's mother doesn't want to. Theo's brother Camille has real problems. He is the wild one. Dressed in his fishnet stockings and garish make-up, Camille sings at the local gay club. He sleeps with his lover (also his doctor) in the same hotel as Daiga. Camille seems nice enough until it is discovered that he is not only a drug addict and HIV positive, he also strangles old women to death while a partner robs their homes. Camille seems oddly distant from his actions which he calmly describes. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide
