A macabre love poem from the director of THE BEAST and IMMORAL TALES.

Very little known film, I'd venture, but a worthy depiction of a subject that could be portrayed in the cinema more often, giving short shrift to commercial pornography.

Parisian poetry in motion, then playing the game of life. This one is hard to forget - or figure out.
