The sun-drenched splendor of Rio de Janeiro provides the backdrop to this sexy comedy of romantic entanglement. Among the tourists who find themselves footloose and under the sway of the city's erotic spell are Charlotte Rampling (Swimming Pool) as a prominent British plastic surgeon warning that new looks don't solve old problems; Bill Pullman (Surveillance, Lost Highway) as a U.S. ambassador who seeks a break from his duties in one of city's most dangerous shanty towns; and Irene Jacob (Red, The Double Life of Veronique) as a French anthropologist whose proper nature is no match for the pleasures of Rio. Director Jonathan Nossiter (Mondovino) weaves the tales of these wanderers together into a holiday of sensual delight.
