An adaptation of Colette’s romantic drama set in 1920s Paris, in which the son of an old courtesan is initiated by one of her former colleagues, to educate him in the ways of love. Before long, something that begins as a playful flirt soon turns into a passionate love affair, with a tragic ending.

Our take

Michelle Pfeiffer reunites with Stephen Frears and Christopher Hampton—the writer/director duo behind Dangerous Liaisons—for this handsome adaptation of another classic of French literature: Colette’s controversial 1920 novel. A stylish production with welcomingly subversive sexual politics.
