Synopsis

For ten days in May 2012, director James Toback and actor Alec Baldwin worked their way through the Cannes Film Festival in an attempt to secure financing for a proposed film project, a political-erotic Middle Eastern adventure inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci's classic "Last Tango in Paris." As they dashed around - hopeful against all odds - Toback filmed the hilarious and revealing proceedings, from pitches to billionaires, studio moguls, producers and international sales financiers, to intimate encounters with major movie stars and iconic directors whose passion for movies proves it's still possible to transcend the madness. The cinematic romp captures the tug-of-war between the eternal dream of creating pure art and the bracing reality of modern movie commerce.
