Summary
In a very special brothel known as the Balcony, the customers live out their wildest dreams, oblivious to a revolution that's going on outside. This star-studded film features Shelley Winters as the brothel's madam and Peter Falk as her occasional lover, who enlists her help in halting the revolution. The leader of the rebels falls for the madam's executive assistant, who longs to return to her former role as just "one of the girls."
