The first release ever on home video anywhere in the world for this rarely seen feature starring The Velvet Underground singer, Nico.

Here she plays Ariane, a young ballet dancer with dreams of stardom. In order to pay the rent she accepts a job in an upmarket strip club. At first, unable to go the whole way, she runs off the stage in tears. But soon she devises a unique act that captivates audiences and elevates her to star status in the competitive world of the 1960's Paris striptease scene.

Featuring music by Serge Gainsbourg, this is the only mainstream movie in which Nico played a lead role. Way before Warhol and Chelsea girls - see Nico Icon in all her glorious monochrome glory!

  • Interview with Nico biographer Richard Witts (17 mins)
