An interesting companion piece to Tsai Ming-liang's Goodbye, Dragon Inn, this 2002 French feature is also set entirely inside a movie theater, though here it's a Pigalle fleapit that shows heterosexual porn mainly to bisexual, transsexual, and transvestite men cruising for sex with straight men. Written and directed by Jacques Nolot (who has scripted and acted in films by Paul Vecchiali and Andre Techine), the story gradually homes in on the theater's middle-aged cashier (Vittoria Scognamiglio), a wry 50-year-old writer who's asymptomatic HIV positive (Nolot), and a young projectionist (Sebastien Viala) who attracts the other two. Too preoccupied with personality and emotion to qualify as porn, but still very much concerned with the kind of interaction that goes on in such a place, this is a touching if relatively specialized chamber piece. The French title, La Chatte a Deux Tetes, is a reference to Cocteau meaning literally “The Two-Headed Pussy.” In French with subtitles. 90 min.
