Part of BAMcinématek 2013 series Adjani
Directed by Elaine May | 1987

With Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, Isabelle Adjani

New DCP of director's cut!

Elaine May’s (Mike and Nicky) notorious box office flop has been on a steady path to critical respectability since its disastrous premiere. Viewed today, this satire about a pair of bumbling songwriters (Beatty and Hoffman) who get swept up in Middle Eastern political intrigue and ensnared by a local rebel leader (Adjani) is a “very funny work by one of this country's greatest comic talents… Among the highlights: Charles Grodin's impersonation of a CIA operative, a blind camel, Vittorio Storaro's cinematography, and a delightful series of deliberately awful songs” (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader).
