Hong Kong action diva Maggie Cheung (playing herself) comes to France when a past-his-prime director casts her in a remake of the silent classic Les Vampires. Clad in a rubber catsuit and unable to speak a word of French, Cheung finds herself adrift in the insanity of the film industry…

MUBI's take

Starring alongside Jean-Pierre Léaud, Maggie Cheung is the mysterious, latex-clad femme fatale at the center of haute auteur Olivier Assayas’s spiky and dizzyingly hip ’90s satire of the French film industry. Assayas currently has an Irma Vep miniseries in the works for HBO with Alicia Vikander!
