Storyline

The story of a broke but talented composer, Mike, and his search for true love. The question is, how to find it, especially when your insecurities tends to make you jealous even when a girlfriend strokes your cat. Mike's alcoholic writer father who believes all his ills will be cured by finding his runaway wife, tells him there is only one thing that makes life worth living: "the empress"; perfect sex that goes on for days with a woman so beautiful you could cry. To Mike, however, the empress is love that lasts forever, not sex that lasts for days. Written by Anette Rosberg <anette.rosberg@malmo.se>

wet as a pancake.
18 September 1999 | by jules-108See all my reviews

A US distributor told me that the problem with this film is that >it was too english. She was right, too. It occasionally made me >laugh but Reece Dinsdale's failure to find a girlfriend and >constant winging annoyed the hell out of me. Funny that the same >cannot be said for Johnny Favareau in 'Swingers' which is a much >better film about the same topic.
