Gérard Depardieu makes an archeological find of a two-million year old French woman which he calls Laura. He is approached and conned by an American advertising executive Sigourney Weaver, masquerading as a charity organisation executive in order to use the woman for her own perfume advertising campaign. Later the real charity organisation executive Ruth Westheimer turns up ... it all develops from there.


Chicago Sun-Times reviewer Roger Ebert wrote of this film, "Add it all up, and what you've got here is a waste of good electricity. I'm not talking about the electricity between the actors. I'm talking about the current to the projector."[1] It's on his "Most Hated Films" list.
