A Woody-Allen-style comedy in a Jewish neighborhood by director and actor John Turturro.
Murray (Woody Allen) coaxes Fioravante (John Turturro), who works in a flower shop, to
become a hired lover for rich middle-aged ladies, as a way of making some much needed
cash after an out-of-the-blue request from his dermatologist (Sharon Stone). They share
the money, he gets and Murray spends it on the black family, he lives with. But then
Murray connects him with the widow Avigal, a devoted Jewess, who after two years still
mourns her dead husband. With Murray acting as Fioravante's "manager", the duo quickly
finds themselves caught up in the crosscurrents of love and money. Although many scenes
begin as a comedy, some end on a very touching note. Also stars Vanessa Paradis, Liev
Schreiber and Sofía Vergara.
