"Celebrated documentary director Frederick Wiseman spent ten weeks with his camera exploring one of the most mythic places dedicated to women: Crazy Horse Paris. Wiseman's impeccable eye allows us to enter into this intriguing international temple of the Parisian cabaret world and to discover what makes the Crazy Horse tick: elegance, perfectionism and a grueling schedule (with two shows a night and three on Saturdays, seven days a week). The film follows the rehearsals and performances for a new show called DÉSIRS, staged by Philippe Decouflé, a celebrated French choreographer, as well as the backstage preparations of the dancers (makeup and costume fittings) and also the various issues involved in the planning of the show and administration of the cabaret. The show DÉSIRS is an artistic, modern, humorous and colorful spectacle that is the pinnacle of 'nude chic.'"--
