Directed by Nelly Kaplan • 1991 • France
Starring Pierre Arditi, Françoise Fabian, Dominique Blanc
The final feature directed by Nelly Kaplan is a sly, period-set variation on her signature themes of sex, power, and the relationships between men and women. In the 1930s, egotistical teacher Guillaume (Pierre Arditi) is brought to a lush tropical plantation under the pretext of tutoring a teenage girl. There, however, he finds himself at the whims of three seductive women who have other plans for him.
