Summary
The urban sensibility of immigrant Jewish Montreal is chronicled in this darkly satirical portrait of 67-year-old Barney Panofsky, who decides to set the record straight about his Bohemian days in Paris and London in the 1950s, his circle of famous and infamous friends, his career as a television producer, and his wildly unsuccessful relationships with women
