Synopsis

Gallery director Stanislas bolsters the development of modern art with his collection of surprising works. His newest acquisition is a sculpture by Gilbert, whose wife Josée is captivated by Stanislas. But unbeknownst to her, Stanislas is amassing photographs of a very perverse, disturbed nature.

Our take

Henri-Georges Clouzot’s only film to be completed in color was also the last of his career. Set within the buzzing, psychedelic art scene of 1960s Paris, Woman in Chains explores the oppressive and utterly hallucinatory tensions of a love triangle while spying on the bourgeois society of the time.
