  • A stream-of-consciousness dialogue between playwright/actor Wallace Shawn and director/actor Andre Gregory, as it unfolds over dinner in a posh NYC restaurant. The two basically play themselves, and Andre does most of the talking. Wallace Shawn functions as a sort of audience-surrogate, grounding Gregory's philosophical speculations with his own occasional wisecracks.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...A wonderfully chilling performance by Jean Lenauer..."

    "...A thrilling drama -- A film with more action than RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "Pretty good as philosophy textbook..."

    "[A]n arthouse hit in 1981 built around a conversation between old friends and collaborators playing themselves, directed with dining-room intimacy by Louis Malle."
