The self-tagged 'best nude dancing show in the world', legendary nightclub Le Crazy Horse de Paris comes under the sharp eye of 'one of today's greatest living documentary filmmakers', Frederick Wiseman. In his first digitally shot film, the cinéma vérité pioneer follows two obsessive perfectionists, choreographer Philippe Decouflé and artistic director Ali Mahdavi, as they create a new erotic revue entitled Désirs. The performance, complete with eye-catching projections and exquisite less-is-more costumes, showcases the outrageously beautiful nudes in an abstract manner reminiscent of Helmut Newton or pop artist Allen Jones. As in many of his films (he's made roughly one a year since 1967, including La Danse: The Paris Opera Ballet and Ballet), Wiseman, unintrusively records the routines and rhythms of performance, the backstage chat, the clash between creativity and practicality, beauty and vulgarity - and the complex mesh of modern-day institutions.
