Introduction

In an elegant Spanish hotel lobby, a film cast and crew outdo one another in displays of professional and sexual rivalry while waiting endlessly for shooting to begin.

Choreographed like a ballet to music by Peer Raben, Donizetti, Elvis Presley and Leonard Cohen – and shot by the masterly Michael Ballhaus – this is a gorgeous ode to filmmaking, warts and all.
