Product Description:

A frank, graphic erotic drama about a very proper Provincial society wife who rejects the limitations of her social role and instigates an affair with an earthy lower-class man. Special Jury Prize, Venice Film Festival.

Plot Synopsis:

Jeanne, a bored French housewife, is tired of her passionless marriage to a Henri, an aloof newspaper mogul obsessed with his work. Though they live in lovely château with servants and every amenity, Jeanne regularly trots off to Paris, where her craving for excitement is satiated by a flighty crowd of socialites. Henri grows suspicious of Jeanne's relationship with Raoul, a handsome, polo-playing bachelor with whom she's having an extramarital. At Henri's request, Jeanne agrees to invite Raoul for the weekend. She goes to town to invite him, but after returning from Paris, Jeanne meets Bernard, a young man whom she also invites to her home. That night, Jeanne and Bernard have an encounter that changes her life forever.
