Synopsis: Bruno is an idealistic hero who questions the meaning of life in this confusing and sometimes hallucinatory erotic drama. After a night in jail, he is gang-raped by punk rockers in a garbage dump. He later saves an old man who believes he is Garibaldi and a woman he believes is Ophelia. Bruno watches helplessly as she later jumps from a window.

Fergusson, don't be an idiot !

We know you're in there !

Surrender. Think of your mother.

I don't have a mother.

- Then your father.

- I don't have a father either.

- Your sister.

- Not a sister, either.

- Your aunt.

- No aunt.

Think about what you want, but come

out with your hands to heaven !

I don't know how to think about hell

or heaven, just killing and dying !

Here I am, cops !

Seven, eight... One, two.

What the hell is he doing ?

Stop ! Is he mad ?

Even scums now dare do crazy things !

- Calm down.

- Tell him to get lost !

Sorry. He thought he was doing

something nice.

- It was an idea.

- You get lost too !

In police films, he is professionaI.

After 30 films...

After 30 films, he still hasn't

been successfuI !

Is it possible

that while someone is dying

he starts dancing like Gene Kelly

in ''Singing in the Rain'' ?

- That was James Cagney.

- I'll stick him to my balls.

And to James Cagney's balls,

I'll stick that shitface !

But I can't stick an agent Iike you

to his balls

- because he doesn't have any !

- Do you want to see them ?

Show them to your sister !

Why are they so low ?

You should have them under your chin

because you're a cock face !

Get out ! Go on, get out !

Go away !

Piselleschi, another one !

I thought that in inventing

my death,

he wouId understand that death

is not to be underestimated.

Dangerous actions, especially

when you do them without telling me.

As your agent I must know how you

want to ruin yourself and me.

You can't throw away a fortune.

What fortune ?

Your body.

A body in cinema is important.

It's everything.

But one must know how to expIoit it.

You need a bright director,

not one like Hungry Dog.

You are my agent. Find one.

I already did.

- I toId big Woody about you.

- Who is he ?

- The biggest director today.

- Never heard of him.

That's natural.

Critics, urged on by competition,

ignore his fiIms.

- Let me see.

- What're you doing ? It's a mole.

- What type of films does he make ?

- Suited to masses, easy.

But for a cuItured

and refined audience.

BeIow a superficial simplicity,

there are messages, meanings,


profane impIications.

Bergman is Ridolini

compared to him.

- Oh, sh*t.

- Right.

Didn't you want to be an artist ?

This is your chance.

This is the address.

Go and tell him I sent you.

You're not an agent,

you're a friend, a brother.

- How can I thank you ?

- Give me 30% .

- Okay. I'll run to big Woody.

- Stop !

I caII him that, but for you

he is Woudruf Vandenberg Scott.

- What is your name ?

- What ?

- What is your name ?

- Bruno Martel.

- Never heard of it.

- It was a pIeasure.

I didn't want to offend you, but

to take care of your human problem.

- It's taken care of. I don't exist.

- But you want to exist.

- Yes.

- For yourseIf or for others ?

- For others.

- You want to satisfy the audience.

What biggest desire, than continued

unsatisfied sex, haunts man ?

From your words, I notice

the typicaI perpIexity of orphans.

You guessed. As a Frenchman,

I onIy know Nouvelle vague.

Nouvelle vague has become an oId

wave that, upon drawing back,

has left crabs, shrimps,

suffocating fish, chamber pots and...

- And shitfaces !

- I understand.

Show me I am wrong.

I propose a dilemma.

Has art become pornography

or has pornography become art ?

Did you ever ask yourseIf ?

Yes, but why must I be a pioneer

of pornographic art ?

If we'd already be at a point

where the critics say,

''Liv Ullmann's bIow job comes

from a good school.''

''De Niro carried out his

jerk off with extreme vigor.''
