Summary
Socialite Frederique encounters young student Why on the streets of Paris, seduces her and whisks her off to spend winter with the chic crowd in St. Tropez. When architect Paul meets Why, he too charms her and comes between the two lovers, resulting in a ménage-à-trois beset by jealousy, madness, and ultimately, murder. It is a landmark film in history; its theme of bisexuality and upper-class decadence is surpassed only by its cool precision of cinematic style and exceptionally subtle performances
