Synopsis

Philip Emmenthal, a wealthy businessman, and his son, Storey, are two very different men whose shared grief inspires them to embark on an elaborate sexual odyssey. When Storey takes his father to see Federico Fellini's masterpiece, "8 1/2," the sight of so many magnificent women prompts them to create their own private bordello on their Geneva estate. While enthusiastically dedicating themselves to the pursuit of sexual pleasure, the two men discover that ecstasy has a dark side, that fantasies inevitably turn into realities, and that women always come out on top.
