Two men try to achieve "absolute zero" - with a goal to "do less every day" - while staying in a villa and swimming and wasting time ... until they meet a svelte girl who "collects" men as conquests. Together, the guys make a game out of not falling into her vaginal trap (what a game that is!) - and she, in turn, plays hard to get - making this all seem like a big tease ... or, more accurately, a movie that wants to achieve as little as possible. This so-so "moral" doesn't exactly impress me, but Nestor Almendros' photography is lovely (as usual), and I like this line so much I had to write it down: "It takes courage to not work." I hear that.
