A love story

A young woman lives with her old husband and more or less changes his charms. Until she is introduced to the Banker, a charismatic, cold, rich character who has so much power that he only conceives his sexuality in humiliation. A sado-masochistic relationship will develop, not only sexual, between a man who never really manages to let himself be dominated, even if he aspires to do so, and a woman who does not have the strength and energy to constantly play the role of mistress.

Based on Régis Jauffret’s harsh interpretation of the assassination of the banker Édouard Stern by his mistress Cécile Brossard.
Here, the characters are not named other than by functions: THE BANKER, THE HUSBAND, THE YOUNG WOMAN, THE NEIGHBOR.
