Whilst it does sound 'dodgy' I'm not so sure, here is a link from
yesterdays BBC webpage using a solar film:  
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7501476.stm

and I recall the CSIRO tried unsuccessfully to get funds to further
research into a flexible and new way of depositing solar cells onto
material.
