Summary, etc.:
When past-his-prime director Rene Vidal impetuously casts Cheung as the lead in his remake of the silent classic Les Vampires, the actress finds herself adrift among a disorganized crew-including an increasingly erratic Vidal, a lovesick bi-sexual costumer, and a gossipy executive's wife. With freewheeling cinematography choreographed to the strains of Sonic Youth and Luna, Irma Vep immerses the viewer into the heady desperation of modern movie-making.
