Beware of a Holy Whore (Digital Restoration)

Nominees and Awards


In a hotel near the sea, a film team awaits the arrival of the director, the star, the money supplied by the state-supported film agency and the film material. The atmosphere is a mix of hysteria, apathy, hope, quarrelling, jealousy, affairs. When the director arrives with the star, the former is placed at the center of the chaos. In senseless actions, the entire team — by now they feel increasingly dependent on Jeff — rebels against him. Jeff gets beaten up. But finally, the shooting of the film can begin.
