As far as headline making scandals go, the hoopla around IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his alleged sexual assault of a hotel worker in New York City, seems to have faded from memory. But leave it to Abel Ferrara to bring it charging back into the minds of everyone. The latest trailer for "Welcome To New York" is here and it promises no shortage of sizzle.

As far as headline making scandals go, the hoopla around IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his alleged sexual assault of a hotel worker in New York City, seems to have faded from memory. But leave it to Abel Ferrara to bring it charging back into the minds of everyone. The latest trailer for "Welcome To New York" is here and it promises no shortage of sizzle.

Or rather, carefully-worded-to-avoid-legal-problems sizzle. The names have been changed and a disclaimer essentially says this is fiction (right), but Gérard Depardieu takes the lead in this one, playing Mr. Deveraux, a man who is not unlike Strauss-Kahn, and gets involved in a very similar situation (the final shot of the trailer is a pretty terrific one). Darkly lit rooms abound, as does the suggestion of bad deeds, all while Jacqueline Bisset looks like she's owning the whole movie with her steely gaze.

"Welcome To New York" goes VOD in France on May 17th. No word yet on when it will crossover stateside. Watch below. [Telerama]
