Irma Vep

DVD - 2021

A Hong Kong action-movie star arrives in Paris to play the latex-clad lead in a remake of Louis Feuillade's classic silent crime serial Les vampires. What she finds is a behind-the-scenes tangle of barely controlled chaos as egos clash, romantic attractions simmer, and an obsessive director drives himself to the brink to realize his vision.
