Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Reviewers found that the otherwise intriguing story and appealing performances in this film were burdened with an editorial technique they labelled "anti-structural," and "anarchic." Stefek is a small-time hood on the run from the really serious mobsters in the car chase which opens the movie. He briefly finds asylum in, of all places, a mental hospital, where he has himself admitted as a kleptomaniac. When this ruse fails to throw his pursuers off the scent for long, he and his sidekick get jobs at an opera company. As the doorman, he is in an ideal spot to notice and avoid pursuit. One he's been on the job for a while, he discovers that the high-toned art palace he works in does double-duty as an equally high-toned brothel.
