From Peter Greenaway, one of Britain's most controversial directors, 8 1/2 Women is a laconic black comedy that examines the age-old phenomenon of male sexual fantasy, its roots and consequences. A rich businessman from Geneva acquires eight and a half pachinko parlors in Kyoto, Japan. They are run by his son who is fascinated by earthquakes. When the father's beloved wife dies, the son takes him to see Federico Fellini's film 8 1/2 to distract him from his grief and rekindle some interest in the opposite sex. Inspired by Fellini's vision, they bring eight and a half women from Japan and Europe and turn the father's Geneva mansion into a private harem. Amanda Plummer, Toni Collette, Polly Walker and Vivian Wu (the protagonist of Greenaway's previous film The Pillow Book), head the cast of this multi-layered film.

Philip Emmenthal, a wealthy businessman, and his son, Storey, are two very different men whose shared grief inspires them to embark on an elaborate sexual odyssey. When Storey takes his father to see Federico Fellini's masterpiece, '8 1/2,' the sight of so many magnificent women prompts them to create their own private bordello on their Geneva estate. While enthusiastically dedicating themselves to the pursuit of sexual pleasure, the two men discover that ecstasy has a dark side, that fantasies inevitably turn into realities, and that women always come out on top.

Comedy drama. A strange relationship develops between a father and son when the father becomes a widower. Both father and son are wealthy businessmen. The son is settled in Japan, where he runs a chain of gambling houses. But when his mother dies, he returns to the family home in Geneva to console his father. Eventually the two, having attended a screening of Fellini's classic '8½,' decide it would be an appropriate idea to start their own harem of various females, each representing a particular 'stereotype'.
