Section: Profile: Atom Egoyan

The Exotica erotic nightclub draws in peculiar individuals. On one side, there are girls who get paid for being looked at by people who are strictly prohibited from touching them. On the other side, there's their audience, who pays not only for the view, but also for understanding and feelings. This existential drama examines in the greatest detail the essence of human nature, and complicated interpersonal relationships affected equally by the past, coincidence, and desires.
