Comments: This film is ice cold and Caroline Ducey is magnificent in the lead. One of the most intellectually erotic films Catherine Breillat has manufactired. This is her masterpiece. Sexy, sad, and just plain real co-exist in the same moment.

Summary: Although deeply in love with her boyfriend - and indeed sleeping in the same bed with him - a schoolteacher cannot handle the almost complete lack of intimacy he will allow. Increasingly frustrated, she gradually finds her sexual appetites leading her into ever more risky situations, including a developing one with the headmaster.
