Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This experimental British film, billed as a "philosophical comedy", focuses upon interesting conversations at a cosmic dinner party attended by some of Western civilization's most renowned philosophers. The film begins when Eve, a modern woman, dies and finds herself at a dinner party in purgatory. Her companions are Saint Paul, a Christian; Socrates, a Greek philosopher; Machiavelli, the Renaissance politician; and Simone de Beauvoir, an existentialist and feminist. As they eat, they discuss and debate the meaning of life.
