"Grippingly candid and charged with eroticism....Powerhouse stuff." -- Rating: A
Los Angeles Times - 10/20/1995
"...[An] audacious, persuasive film....An elegant, highly visual film....1-900 is one film for adults that actually is grown-up..."
Based on the stage play "06" by Dutch playwright Johan Doesburg, this daring film follows the quirky relationship between a pair of working professionals who meet when they call a sex-phone line. The two have spirited, often graphic weekly conversations, and, despite their agreement that they should never meet, they can't help but wishing they could.
Producer-director Theo van Gogh's uncommonly frank exploration of sexual alienation probes the emotional possibilities of erotic phone lines.
A pair of lonely-hearts "find" each other via a 900 number. Through this technology, they commence once-a-week dates that run the gamut from comic and sexy to restless and ominous.
Though their interest in one another increases, they are unable to meet. Neither one even knows the other's name. However, each wants desperately to have a real attachment to the phantom partner.
Will they can connect, or will they only remain telephone voices'
