Le mépris. That’s contempt in French, and it’s the feeling that Camille has for her writer boyfriend Paul during the time he’s summoned to Rome’s Cinecittà film studios and the stunning island of Capri to help Austrian-born Hollywood director Fritz Lang (playing himself) and coarse American producer Prokosch (Jack Palance) improve their movie version of Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’.A sumptuously stylish study of a rocky marriage and fraught professional relationships.
