Ten short pieces directed by ten different directors, including Ken Russell, Jean-Luc Godard, Robert Altman, Bruce Beresford, and Nicolas Roeg. Each short uses an aria as soundtrack/sound (Vivaldi, Bach, Wagner), and is an interpretation of the particular aria.

Compiling the short works of ten different directors, this uneven and semi-indulgent film (originally unrated for sex and nudity, but re-rated as R) combined MTV-style images in brief vignettes to various operatic arias:

Jean-Luc Godard’s Armide

Two naked gym attendants (Marion Peterson and Valérie Allain as Les Jeunes Filles) attempted to get the attention of disinterested muscle-bound bodybuilders in Paris’s Weider Gym by flaunting themselves and threatening to stab the dehumanized men.

Bruce Beresford’s Die Tote Stadt (“Spirits of the Dead City”)

A young and then-unknown Elizabeth Hurley (as Marietta) appeared nude as the ghostly deceased wife of lover Paul (Peter Birch).

Franc Roddam’s Liebestod

Bridget Fonda (in her first ‘credited’ film debut) was featured as part of a couple who committed suicide together in a Las Vegas bathtub (by slitting their wrists with shards of broken glass) after making love in a cheap hotel room lit by flashing neon signs. They hugged as they expired together – although maybe it was only a fantasy?

Ken Russell’s surrealistic Nessun Dorma (“…And None Shall Sleep”)

This segment paralleled Egyptian goddess worship with a scene of a blonde car wreck victim (British pin-up Linzi Drew) with a disfigured left side of her face (and other major injuries), being operated upon and given heart-shock treatment – although she hallucinated being adorned with sparkling jewels and was segmented into the body parts of a mannequin.
