Private Project

Wine and Roses (and Wine)

All Ada wants is a quiet evening, but Otto has other plans. Showing up with no invitation, the self-styled ladies’ man will not rest until he has won her affections. She's running out of ways to convey her feelings. He won't take a hint. What can Ada do to get rid of him? What sordid ideas could Otto get once his pride has been wounded? A film palindrome of comic proportions, Wine and Roses (and Wine) explores the dilemmas modern women face when confronting the entitled presumptions of men who won’t take “no” for an answer.
