A young copywriter moves to Rome in the wake of his screenwriter father's death, where he meets a publisher who wants to release his dad's autobiography.
According to the film's producer and director, Sharon Stone was very difficult to work with. She had made all kind of outrageous demands before appearing in the movie, like being brought to the Italian set in a specially modified train, and the right to choose her own wardrobe in the movie. The production was nearly bankrupted before filming had even started because Stone had selected exclusive Bvlgari clothes (which she could buy after production for a fraction of its original price). During filming of her last scene, she spotted a cameraman of the Italian TV filming, immediately left the set and informed the director through her manager in Los Angeles that she wouldn't reappear unless the cameraman was removed.
