No, it's not six unemployed steel workers forming a male striptease act - this amusingly titled film is based on Monteverdi's fourth book of madrigals. The plot concerns six couples breaking up simultaneously in a restaurant, basing its quirky structure on Monteverdi's complex polyphonic music - which was highly innovative in the 1600s.
