What are the links between Christina, a dancer in a schoolgirl's outfit at the Exotica club, and Francis, a regular patron who seems fascinated by the young woman?  What makes Eric, the club's DJ, so jealous? What strange trafficking is Thomas, the quiet owner of an exotic animal shop up to?

Distinguished by the International Critics Prize at Cannes Film Festival, Exotica is not easy to grasp. The maze like narration has fun misleading viewers without totally losing them, playing with mirror games, doppelgangers and false pretences. A disconcerting experience that reveals all its flavors only with its surprising conclusion.
