The first feature from Sally Potter, the director of Orlando, The Tango Lesson and The Man who Cried, is a key film of early Eighties feminist cinema, embracing a radical, experimental structure and made with an all woman crew. Colette (Colette Laffont), a black French woman working in the City, as a computer operator at a bank, begins to investigate the significance of the figures she copies, despite discouragement from her male bosses, and discovers gold to be the secret key to the circulation of money. Also starring Julie Christie as Ruby, Collette’s beautiful companion.
