Irma Vep
(Irma Vep)

by Olivier ASSAYAS

Maggie Cheung is a Hong Kong martial- arts film star. She has just arrived in Paris to play the main part in a remake of Louis Feuillade’s Vampires, a 1915 silent film, which René Vidal is making for television. She will play Musidora’s role as a modern-day Irma Vep who will look more like Catwoman in “Batman 2”. Alone in Paris, not speaking a word of French, struggling with her awkward English when she talks to people who hardly master the language better then she does, Maggie does her best to try and understand what people want from her, a victim of jetlag and of the troubles of her daily life during the shoot.
