In this French movie (with English subs) by Catherine Breillat, 37 year-old ophthalmologist, Frédérique, a twice-divorced mother of two, and the much-younger Christophe become lovers and have a seemingly “perfect love.” But all is not well in the relationship. Frédérique, who as an adult woman must deal with her own past, falls in love with Christophe’s loving personality, but he has another, less mature, side, too. He likes to party hedonistically, hustling other women with his friend, Phillipe. Eventually, Christophe and Frédérique’s “perfect love” cannot survive the pressures of their differences and winds up in a gruesome murder.
