Who's The Top?

WHO’S THE TOP?

Gwen loves Alixe and has every reason to be happy with her except that Alixe, a young poet, often seems distracted. At times like these Alixe is either dreaming of Cymon Blank, a dark poet and adventurer, or her mind is drifting away to certain leather-clad girl gangs. When Alixe sets off for San Francisco to interview Cymon, Gwen starts to worry – with good reason …
Making use of two dozen Broadway dancers – male and female – the film tries to provide musical answers to the question of what is more arousing: sexual adventure or erotic fantasy.
