a film by :Benoit Jacquot

In the present day Paris, Dominique lives the life of a well-off single woman. Her life is tinged with a natural elegance reinforced by her job in a big " Maison de Couture ". When Dominique meets Quentin in a bar frequented by homosexuals and transvestites, the young man's perfect beauty confuses her. The promise of a hoped-for but unexpected love shatters her. She makes him leave his job, provides for his needs and installs him in her flat.

French Synopsis :

Dans le Paris d'aujourd'hui, Dominique mène une existence de célibataire aisée. Sa vie est empreinte d'une élégance naturelle que son métier dans une grande maison de couture conforte. Lorsqu'elle rencontre Quentin dans un bar fréquenté par les homosexuels et les travestis, la beauté parfaite du jeune homme la trouble. La promesse d'un amour espéré mais inattendu bouleverse ses jours. Elle lui fait quitter son emploi, subvient à ses besoins et l'installe chez elle.
