Once upon a time Ferreri made sprightly little sexual fables with a tasty black humour. Then the shock factor took over, culminating in Ferreri's beloved phallocracy capitulating to feminism with Depardieu chopping off his dong in The Last Woman. Now Ferreri seems to have gone soft in this uninspiring tale of an attempted New Deal in relationships, in which a bored bourgeois couple take in a pregnant femme maudite and squabble over her body and baby. Terrific design and loud disco music are no compensation for the spectacle of this tiresome trio, who weep, pout and beat each other up, giving little hope for the result of Ornella Muti's (real-life) pregnancy.
