In this playfully erotic tale that sparks with restless energy, Christine, Nassim, and Marcello feel an irresistible attraction during a chance meeting in Los Angeles and form an extraordinary bond. Each member of the threesome is in transition: fun-loving Marcello from under the thumb of his Italian soap star father, soulful French-Iranian actor Nassim toward a more fulfilling career, and artist Christine through the grief following the death of her grandfather. But the frolicsome trio finds joy and release together—exploring their sexuality, joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional amour—until Marcello must return to Italy and their experience there threatens the delicate balance of their relationship.
Deliberately reminiscent of Francois Truffaut’s French New Wave masterpiece, Jules et Jim, Show Me What You Got is both playful and profound, brilliantly scripted and wonderfully acted. Featuring stunning black and white, wide screen cinematography, an unexpected finale throws a new light on all that precedes it.
