Trivia

This was filmed simultaneously with another Henry Miller adaptation, Tropic of Cancer (1970). Both were filmed (at least partly) in Paris and Miller himself would drop by the sets of both films. At times, filming locations were only a quick walk away. See more »

Quotes

Joey: It's strange how some come into one's life for a moment or two and then disappear forever. And yet, there's nothing accidental about such meetings.

18 October 2014 | by peterroeder34See all my reviews

Pretty funny and trashy take on Miller's vision. The sex in this movie makes The Room love scenes to look like high art. For example the almost total absence of doggystyle position, I don't know if it was a censorship issue but it seems stupid to watch this Italian Stalion softcore sex over and over. The guy playing Miller does a rather awful job anyway. He might be an interesting person himself but he is no Henry Miller that is for sure! Anyway, the movie is oversexed in a silly way like if someone saw American Psycho as only being about physical violence for example. Thus in a way it is a weird take on Miller to make it about sex. Miller had a number of other interests such as philosophy.
