Description by OLDIES.com:

Academy Award-winners Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortune) and Juliette Binoche (The English Patient) are lovers locked in the grip of sexual obsession. Obsession so strong it drinks passion, breathes fire and consumes everything and everyone it touches.

Academy Award-nominated Director Louis Malle (Atlantic City) peels back the layers of one family's tragedy to reveal a middle-aged man (Irons) and his son's fiancee (Binoche) entangled in an intensely erotic affair that is as irresistible as it is destructive. Electrifying performances by Irons, Binoche, and Academy Award-nominee Miranda Richardson as Irons' tortured wife, highlight this riveting portrait of an ordinary man, transformed by desire and willing to pay any price for his passion.

Product Description:

Willing to pay any price for his passion, he goes a step too far, and ultimately arranged his own tragic demise.
