starring Joan Collins. From IMDb:

After a scientific experiment goes horribly wrong during a demonstration, a scientist finds himself trapped in an alternate reality that bears some similarities to our own, but also has some striking differences. In this other reality the Second World War had never occurred, mankind had not yet traveled into Space and Mt. Everest had not yet been conquered, just to name a few things. Also in this other reality he is no longer a scientist but rather a well known author. He also finds that he is married to a beautiful woman who he instantly falls in love with but who his alternate self never cared for. He has some difficulty convincing anyone that he is not actually who they think he is. With the help of a physics professor who believes his story, he finally manages to convince his 'wife' that he is not the man she knew before. After a personal tragedy in this alternate world, he finds himself back in his own world and desperately trying to locate the woman he fell in love with in the other world. Little does she know, however, that her life depends on him finding her.

From IMDb:  "Robert Mapplethorpe gets his nipple pierced while his boyfriend lends his support in person. Patti Smith lends her support via voice over as she rambles on about her childhood, her transvestite brother, her breasts and Bob Dylan"

Boy, ahead of their time?

US Title:  A Few Hours of Sunlight

It's based on a Francoise Sagan novel and stars Gérard Depardieu way back when he was hot...

OMG! I actually saw that! (at a gay film fest in Amsterdam in 85)  Very acid-trippy feel to it with mylar balloons floating around while a "doctor" pierces Mapplethorpe's nipple. And that's about it, really.
