When Willem Zephyr gives his starlet sweetheart an ancient tile mosaic taken from a Romanian monastery, he has no idea what power his gift will bring. Power, however, comes with a price. Just ask fading movie star Todd Pickett, who decades later stumbles upon the room and its mysteries. Frank Muller chillingly portrays this icy story of Hollywood lust and dysfunction, dusting the glitter off the stars and bringing alive the movie set. His always brilliant characterizations alternately incite sympathy and deep disgust. With inspired understanding of subtext, Muller portrays the graphic scenes of depraved sexual activity with a flatness that, more than any type of enthusiasm, conveys their total lack of intimacy.
