Plot Summary:

Maverick auteur Andrzej Zulawski directs this flamboyant adaptation of classic French novel La Princesse de Cleves, complete
with dirt bike races, hot sex, and naked hockey players. Talented Canadian photographer Clelia (Sophie Marceau) lands a
financially lucrative job in Paris at a rumor-mongering tabloid called La Verite run by Rupert MacRoi (Michel Subor). Though
she finds most of her coworkers to be disillusioned and perverse, she happens upon Cleve (Pascal Greggory), a bumbling
middle-aged children's book publisher. Cleve is days away from marrying MacRoi's daughter to bolster his flagging publishing
house. Nonetheless, Clelia and Cleve retire to his office to make love almost immediately upon meeting. Though MacRoi has
already bought his company, Cleve breaks off his wedding plans and proposes to Clelia. Enter Nemo (Guillaume Canet), a
sexy young photographer who promptly propositions her upon their first encounter. In spite of her ferocious sexual attract
to Nemo, Clelia marries Cleve and resolutely keeps to her wedding vows in the face of her suitor's continued advances.
Madame de la Fayette's novel, from which this film draws inspiration, has already been adapted twice: the 1961 version was
directed by Jean Delannoy and starred Marina Vlady, and the 1999 take, entitled The Letter was directed by Manoel de
Oliveira and featured Chiara Mastroianni.
