A waitress embarks upon a steamy affair with a budding novelist and inspires him to get his work published.
This erotic drama has plenty of sex scenes, but is by no means a softcore pornographic film, featuring an amazing performance from the pouting beauty Beatrice Dalle. It received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film in 1986 and was a huge hit in its native France.
