John Turturro (Barton Fink) directs and stars with Woody Allen in this witty, sexy comedy. Allen plays Murray, who proposes his pal Fioravante (Turturro) take part in a ménage a trois with his dermatologist Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone) and her gorgeous friend Selima (Sofia Vergara) – and before long, becomes Fioravante’s very polite, very cerebral pimp. At first hesitant, Fioravante begins to enjoy his new life, getting sexual fulfilment as well as payment out of the bargain… but when he’s introduced to Avigal (Vanessa Paradis) he finds he wants something more. Bawdy, funny and poignant.

“Sparky, humane and always amusing” *** David Gritten, The Telegraph
“The most charming film at Toronto this year” **** Catherine Shoard, The Guardian
