Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, director Patrice Chereau's emotionally charged drama (based on a Joseph Conrad short story) follows the unraveling of a seemingly happy bourgeois couple's marriage. Pascal Greggory plays the complacent, self-satisfied Jean Hervey, whose orderly world is shaken to the core when his suffocating wife, Gabrielle (Isabelle Huppert), leaves him for another man. The cast also includes Claudia Coli and Chantal Neuwirth.
